Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is able to assist Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) in tough occasions and is able to play beneath any circumstances.
In an off-the-cuff dialog with reporters, PCB Director Media Samiul Hassan Burney mentioned that it’s too early to say something concerning the Pakistan Test staff’s tour of Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka is at present affected by a extreme financial and political disaster nowadays which has elevated the unrest among the many individuals. There have been protests in opposition to the federal government whereas solely 12 hours of electrical energy is being supplied to the locals.
“We have a very strong relationship with the Sri Lankan Board, the two countries have always supported each other in difficult situations,” Burney mentioned.
“In the past, tours have been held in a tense situation, Pakistan did not refuse to play there despite difficult conditions, Sri Lanka also toured Pakistan,” he added.
He additional added that Pakistan wouldn’t refuse to play the sequence in July and August.
“SLC, viewing its circumstances, would take a decision which will be accepted, including playing on their grounds or neutral venue,” he concluded.
Remember, Pakistan will now solely play two Tests on the tour of Sri Lanka. SLC had requested PCB to take away three ODIs which was accepted.
The way forward for worldwide cricket in Sri Lanka is determined by the Australia tour. If the Aussies say no to the island nation, the internet hosting of the Asia Cup in August/September may also be in jeopardy. Cricket Australia (CA) is reviewing the scenario and can make the ultimate resolution quickly.
Due to energy shortages within the nation, internet hosting day-night matches are unsure. SLC makes use of its personal turbines, however the gasoline scarcity might be the principle hindrance.
Asian Cricket Council (ACC) and the BCCI have already expressed concern over the scenario in Sri Lanka. At the top of the Indian Premier League (IPL), whether or not the occasion can be held in Sri Lanka or not can be determined. United Arab Emirates (UAE) has already been chosen as a substitute venue.
