Sri Lanka's T20 squad depleted amid safety concerns

Sri Lanka's T20 squad depleted amid safety concerns”

Pakistan and Sri Lanka will battle in the fourth one-day global of the five-match series on Friday.

"It is not fair to allow players to pick and choose games", said the minister. We will discuss the issue on Monday at an Executive Committee meeting.

Sri Lanka and Pakistan are now playing out a 5-match ODI series in the UAE which the latter has already wrapped up following victories in the first three matches.

Despite being at the receiving end of the terrorist attack when they toured Pakistan in 2009, Sri Lanka Cricket has maintained strong cricket ties with their Asian counterparts.

"But six other support staff including myself are definitely going", Sri Lanka's Cricket Manager Asanka Gurusinha told Cricbuzz.

Sri Lanka have won the toss and chosen to bat first in the fourth ODI against Pakistan in Sharjah.

"Having been fully satisfied with the stringent security measures in place, the SLC ExCo unanimously chose to play the third T20 in Lahore on the 29 October", the SLC said in the statement.

Meanwhile, it remains to be seen whether interim coach Nic Pothas will join his squad after expressing his own concerns about the match in Lahore.

Sri Lanka will play the first two games in the UAE before leaving to Lahore for the final Twenty20 on the 29th of October 2017. The series begins later this month with two games in UAE and the last in Lahore.
