Pakistan is safe to play cricket says Sri Lankan batsman

Thursday 10th October, 2019

Filled with joy on stunning victory as Sri Lankan team completed a 3-0 clean-sweep in Twenty20 series with world number one Pakistan, Sri Lanka’s opening batsman Danushka Gunathilaka shared his experience to play in the cricket-loving country.

At the end of a very special tour, Gunathilaka said: “Pakistan is safe to play cricket & their fans deserve it!”

He also commended the efforts of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for bringing back International cricket to their peaceful nation.

The Sri Lankan board also lauded the crowd for showing respect to the visiting team.

Taking to twitter, Danushka wrote: “End of a very special tour. Kudos to @TheRealPCB for bringing back intl cricket to their fans. Great hospitality. Excellent security measures. Hope every other country will visit here soon. Pakistan is safe to play cricket & their fans deserve it!”

On the other hand, Sri Lankan Cricket’s official account also thanked Pakistani cricket fans for their support and tweeted: “It’s a good victory. Thanks to the Pakistan crowd, they supported not just the home team but us as well.”

It was Sri Lanka’s first-ever Twenty20 series whitewash and they achieved despite missing 10 of their top players, including regular T20 captain Lasith Malinga.

Oshada Fernando had smashed a brilliant 48-ball 78 with three sixes and eight boundaries — the highest by a Sri Lankan player on T20I debut — to lift Sri Lanka to 147-7 in their 20 overs.
