According to the statement, the Sri Lanka Cricket has sought the assistance of the Sri Lankan Government to conduct a reassessment of the security situation in Pakistan ahead of the national team’s planned tour to the country.

“The decision was taken following a warning, the SLC received from the Prime Minister’s Office, sent via the Ministry of Telecommunication, Foreign Employment and Sports,” the statement said.

“Accordingly, the warning highlights that the Prime Minister’s Office has received reliable information of a possible terrorist threat on the Sri Lankan team, while touring Pakistan,” it added.

SLC has been advised to take extreme care, and ‘reassess’ the situation, before embarking on the said tour.
