Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shahryar Khan stated, that as the security situation in the country has improved, it is expected the Sri Lankan cricket team will visit Pakistan sometime this year, reported by Nawa-e-Waqt.
“During ICC meeting, Sri Lankan officials appreciated the security situation and expressed their consent to send their team for few matches in Pakistan,” he said.
While talking to an Urdu newspaper, Khan said that Sri Lankan officials acknowledged security arrangements for the PSL final in Lahore as satisfactory.
The PCB Chairman further added that during ICC meetings, many member states praised the improved security condition in Pakistan as their officials observed the PSL final’s security arrangements first hand.
“Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are also interested in sending their junior teams in Pakistan,” he said.
While talking about the World XI tour in September, Khan stated it was highly important and critical for Pakistan cricket.
“Andy Flower will be coach of the team while players from South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies and Australia will play in the World XI,” he mentioned.
The tour of World XI is linked to the permission of the federal government but PCB chairman said that 90 percent of the procedure has been completed, in this regard.
