SLC (Sri Lanka Cricket) Has Given Us The Security Plan Which We Are Getting In Pakistan: Sri Lanka Skipper
Islamabad: Sri Lanka’s stand-in skipper Lahiru Thirimanne has said that he is happy with Pakistan cricket board’s (PCB) security plan for Sri Lankan team.
Website Bdcrictime.com quoted him as saying on Saturday “, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has presented us the security plan which we are getting in Pakistan so I’m pretty happy with that and I explained to my family as well, so they don’t have a concern since we represent our country.”
He said that at present, his team’s focus was cricket, not security. He further added,” I think it’s another series for me as a player. Because I know this (captaincy) is just for three matches. “Dimuth Karunaratne has been doing a great job leading, and it’s important that we play our best brand of cricket whatever the situation and the team combination we have.”
He agreed that with some top cricketers opting out of the tour, Sri Lanka would be a weaker side but they will play their best cricket. The stand-in skipper said,” “But still we have a good team. I believe if we play to our potential, we can do very well.”
Sri Lanka is scheduled to play three T20Is and as many One-day Internationals (ODIs) in Pakistan. Sri Lanka cricket team will arrive on September 25 in Karachi. The One-day Internationals (ODIs) will take place in Karachi on September 27, 29 and October 2, while T20I matches will be hosted in Lahore on October 5, 7 and 9.
