Five Pakistani cricketers, who are stranded in Sri Lanka due to current lock-down worldwide, will leave for Karachi and Lahore today.


They belong to a contingent of 10 Pakistani cricketers who had been unable to leave the country. 
“There had been seventeen Pakistani cricketers, who came to play for several clubs in Sri Lanka and seven of them had already left in the month of March because of their commitments with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)”, the 36-year-old all rounder Kashif Naved said.   


Naved, playing for the Panadura Cricket Club, is one of the five lucky cricketers who would be leaving for Pakistan today. 


The other four, who will be leaving for Pakistan are Mohtasheem Ali (Kalutara Town Cricket Club), Ahsan Baig (Tamil Union), Ali Maher (Galle Cricket Club) and Qaisar Ashraf (Nugegoda Cricket Club). 


“The arrangement has been done for the five cricketers to travel in a cargo flight. We already had Sri Lanka Airlines travel tickets and therefore given the first preference,” he added. 


“Our High Commissioner and Deputy High Commissioner (Mr. Tanveer) made special arrangements for us”, he added. 


The remaining five, who will be sent later are, Azhar Attari (Panadura Cricket Club), Ali Mansoor (the son of former Pakistani player Mansoor Elahi playing for Kalutara Town Cricket Club), Faizan Khan (Tamil Union), Abid Hasan (Galle Cricket Club) and Basit Ali (Nugegoda Cricket Club).
