Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has announced that it would reassess the security situation in Pakistan after it received a warning from Prime Minister’s (PM) Office of a “possible terrorist threat”.
In a fresh statement issued Wednesday evening, SLC said that the warning was conveyed via the Ministry of Telecommunication, Foreign Employment and Sports.
“Accordingly, the warning highlights that the PM’s Office has received reliable information of a possible terrorist threat on the Sri Lankan team while touring Pakistan,” it added.
The development has once again thrown the possibility of the Sri Lankan cricket team’s tour to Pakistan under doubt. The team was set to land in Karachi on September 25, however, it remains to be seen whether the tour goes as scheduled.
Following SLC’s statement, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has reiterated that it is committed to bringing cricket back to the country and provide complete safety and security to the Sri Lankan cricket team.
