Sri Lankan team arrived Pakistan for two test matches

Sri Lankan team has arrived Islamabad late Sunday for its tour to Pakistan.

The team will play two test matches during the tour.

The first match to be played in Rawalpindi on December 11 and the second in Karachi on December 19.

The Sri Lankan team will hold its first practice on December 10.

Sri Lanka’s bowling champion Suranga Lakmal missed the two-match Test series in Pakistan as he suffers from dengue, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) confirmed.

He is replaced by fast bowler Asitha Fernando.

Law enforcement agencies have the Security plan for the first match ready. Around 4,500 security personnel will be deployed.

Sri Lanka had agreed to play the Test series after the successful staging of on-day and Twenty20 Internationals in September and October this year.

This tour is being considered most important for the cricket loving nation as it would surely highlight Pakistan’s reputation of being as safe and secure as any other country in the world.

The international cricket returned to Pakistan in 2015 when Zimbabwe toured the country for one-day and Twenty20 matches.
