COLOMBO - Sri Lanka's cricket board revealed on Wednesday that they received a warning that their national team could be the target of a terror attack during the upcoming six-match tour of Pakistan.
The board said that their Prime Minister's Office had advised it to "reassess the situation" after it received "reliable information of a possible terrorist threat" against the national squad ahead of the six-match limited overs tour.
It stopped short of calling off the tour, but said a reassessment of the security situation would be sought from Sri Lankan government authorities.
The Sri Lanka team was the victim of a militant attack during a Test match in Pakistan's Lahore in March 2009. Six Sri Lankan players were injured when gunmen attacked their bus while six Pakistan policemen and two civilians were killed.
Ten senior pkayers have alreafy opted out of the upcoming tour citing security concerns.
