ISLAMABAD: The chances of revival of international cricket in Pakistan have brightened as Sri Lanka cricket board has shown keen interest to play in Pakistan.

"I am keen to take my team to Pakistan," Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) President Thilanga Sumathipala said at the Asian Cricket Council's annual general meeting in Colombo.

"We have had our security experts visit and make an assessment, and things look positive with things improving all over the country and especially Lahore being cleared.

"We have three T20 games coming up against Pakistan in September and we would like to play at least one of those games in Lahore."

The International Cricket Council also wants to support the tour of a World XI to Pakistan next month, subject to security clearance, for a three-match T20 series to help revive international cricket in the country.

Sumathipala called for support for Pakistan from the Asian neighbours.
