Pak Vs Srilanka series: Importnat development reported from ICC

DUBAI - Over the Pakistan Vs Srilanka series, Importnat development reported from the International Cricket Council (ICC).

ICC is set to review the security arrangements in Pakistan for the Sri Lanka tour while Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) are going ahead with their plans to stage the limited overs series against Sri Lanka in Lahore and Karachi this month-end and announced 20 probables for the training camp ahead of the series.

Uncertainty over the series being held in Pakistan prevails following the Sri Lanka Prime Minister’s Office receiving information of a possible terrorist threat to their team while touring Pakistan.

The ICC is exploring the possibilities of appointing neutral match officials for the Pakistan-Sri Lanka series — resulting in the visit. When Pakistan hosted Zimbabwe in 2015, the ICC did not post any neutral umpires and it was left to both nations to appoint their umpires. If ICC eventually appoints neutral officials for this series, then it would be an endorsement from the world body that Pakistan is a safe country for a cricket series.
