Sri Lanka Cricket today sought the assistance of the Sri Lankan Government to conduct a ‘Reassessment’ of the security situation in Pakistan ahead of the National Team’s planned tour to Pakistan.

“The decision was taken following a warning, the SLC received from the Prime Minister’s Office, sent via the Ministry of Telecommunication, Foreign Employment and Sports,” SLC said in a statement.

Accordingly, the warning highlights that the Prime Minister’s Office has received reliable information of a possible terrorist threat on the Sri Lankan team while touring Pakistan.

Hence, SLC has been advised to take extreme care, and ‘reassess’ the situation, before embarking on the said tour.

    Why are we sending our boys to Pakistan after all that happened in the past?... It's true that we need to support the Pakistan team but maybe not this time. We are sending a second team and it's not even worth watching these games. Pls. Don't go ahead with this tour.

    Might as well get the assistance of ISIS rather than the Sri Lankan government. SLC never learns.
