Sri Lankan Cricketers Not Ready to Play in Lahore

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) is ready to send its team to Lahore for the third and final T20 against Pakistan on October 29, as scheduled, PCB sources revealed following the conclusion of ICC board meeting in Auckland, New Zealand on Friday.

When contacted, a Pakistan Cricket Board official said: "The Sri Lankan cricket board gave us a go ahead after the ICC meeting, so they will not back off from their word".

Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) bid to revive worldwide cricket in the country suffered a setback on Saturday as Sri Lankan cricketers have reportedly refused to travel to Lahore for the scheduled third and final T20I on October 29.

Apart from the players, the CEO of SLC Ashley de Silva is also concerned regarding the security of his players but on the contrary, the president of the board remains hopeful over the tour of Pakistan.

The three-match T20I series between Pakistan and Sri Lanka will be followed by the ongoing one-day global (ODI) series being played in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Other members in the team are aware of the trauma that the players suffered.

The market capitalization (Stock Price Multiply by Total Number of Outstanding Shares) for the company is reported at $9.49B. Now the stock price is moving -9.27% off from the highest level of twelve months and 34.32% above from twelve months low.

On the other hand, SLC officials have been very keen on the team's travelling to Pakistan.

For Pakistan Cricket Board, though, this will come as a big blow following the positive coverage that the country received when they played hosts to the World XI. Sri Lankan all-rounder Thisara Perera was part of the squad as well and it is reported that he has not signed the letter.

All the three games were played in Lahore. The chances of a full strength Sri Lanka side visiting Lahore have reduced following the letter.

It has been learnt that around 40 centrally contracted Sri Lankan players in a letter have indicated the same to Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC). All matches but the last T20I are scheduled to be played in UAE.
