Cricket: Sri Lanka vows to go ahead with Pakistan tour
Colombo: Sri Lanka's cricket board Sunday vowed to press ahead with a tour of Pakistan next week.
The Twenty20 final in Lahore will be the first time after March 2009.
The board has played down speculation in local media that coach Nic Pothas and team physiotherapist Nirmalan Dhanabalasingham will also not travel to Pakistan. "Nic has not told me he is not going," Sri Lanka cricket boss Thilanga Sumathipala told AFP.
"We are going to be in Pakistan for just over a day, but it is very important for us to go there and revive international cricket in South Asia."
