Colombo, Sept 19 (AFP/APP):Sri Lanka’s cricket board Thursday said it will go ahead with its tour of Pakistan for six matches.
Sri Lanka Cricket secretary Mohan de Silva said they received the all-clear from the defence ministry to leave for Pakistan on Tuesday.
Sri Lanka Cricket added in a statement that the governing body was assured of maximum security, set at a level usually reserved for a head of state.
“Sri Lanka Cricket wishes to announce that the forthcoming tour of Pakistan will go ahead as planned, following assurances given by the Government of Pakistan that it will provide maximum
security,” the statement said.
De Silva added that he and “our office bearers will also be accompanying the team”.
