The long anticipated return of Test cricket in Pakistan is a step closer to becoming a reality as a Sri Lankan delegation tasked with monitoring security arrangements has given the islanders a positive feedback, according to Daily Jang.
The Sri Lankan cricket board, after receiving a positive report from the delegation, is now seriously considering the idea of sending its team to Pakistan for a two-match Test series.
The SLC is now expected to discuss the matter with its own government as well as the Pakistan Cricket Board.
But even if Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) itself is content with the arrangements, it could have a hard time convincing all of its players to make the short trip to Pakistan.
It is pertinent to mention here that while Sri Lanka had visited Pakistan for a T20I in October 2017, the tourists were without several of its frontline players, including their then captain Upul Tharanga and star pacer Lasith Malinga.
Sri Lankan fears stem from the infamous March 2009 attack on its cricket team in Lahore. The terrorist attack had left several Sri Lankan cricketers injured and slammed shut the door of international cricket in their own backyard on PCB. The situation has improved immensely in recent years though.
