Sri Lanka cricket team arrives in Pakistan for ODI matches

Sri Lanka cricket team arrives in Pakistan for ODI matches
KARACHI: Sri Lanka’s national cricket team arrived in Pakistan to play for the upcoming matches between the two countries.
The three ODI matches will be played in Karachi. They will then travel to Lahore to play the same number of T20I fixtures. The visiting team was given a warm welcome upon their arrival.

The captain of the Twenty20 squad, Dasun Shanaka, said that he had no misgivings about returning to Pakistan after they played a Twenty20 international in Lahore in October 2017, their first since the 2009 attack on the team.

“I have been there before,” Shanaka told reporters just before the team left Colombo, where they were blessed by saffron-robed Buddhist monks.
Shanaka said, “I am satisfied with the security arranged for us and I am happy to lead my team to Pakistan. We hope to give a good fight to our very strong hosts.”
Sri Lanka’s cricket board received the all-clear from the defense ministry last week to go ahead with the tour after establishing that there was no threat.
