Thank You Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has done a great job and has shown that sanity can prevail and there are some good Asians out there. Though Lankans are not our neighbors, they have really nailed it and Indian must be fuming out there. India tried level best to stop Sri Lankans from coming over the Pakistan.

Pakistan Cricket is in shambles and the drought has now gone too long. Pakistan last played a Test match in December last year, against India in Bangalore. India called off their tour of Pakistan after New Delhi refused to grant the team permission to travel across the border in the wake of last month’s attacks on Mumbai, which India has blamed on Pakistan-based militants.

Now Sri Lanka has come to the rescue of Pakistan. Sri Lanka’s Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama announced the decision to go ahead after talks with President Mahinda Rajapakse who sanctioned the national team’s tour from January 20 to February 25. Sri Lanka are likely to play Test matches in Karachi, Lahore and Multan, while Karachi would also host the two proposed one-dayers. The remaining one-dayers would likely be played in Lahore.

Pakistan Cricket Board has also taken a sigh of relief. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had said Sri Lanka agreed to tour the country in place of India after playing in Bangladesh.
