The President of Sri Lanka Cricket Thilanga Sumathipala has urged Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to aid the resumption of international cricket between India and Pakistan. Sumathipala has proposed Sri Lanka as a neutral venue for the series.
“I met Mr. Narendra Modi at BMICH (Bandarnayaka Memorial International Conference Hall and conveyed the message to him to consider playing against Pakistan. Not only Pakistan is suffering. India is losing when Pakistan is not playing India as much as Pakistan is losing if India is not playing them. Ï have requested Mr. Modi either to allow both teams to play in Dubai or in Sri Lanka,” said Thilanga Sumathiapala (pakobserver.net).
The lack of international cricket has hurt Pakistan as home games were pushed to venues elsewhere, especially Dubai.
The Pakistan Super League final was a start but doubts still tend to hover over the security in the country. Therefore, a series in Pakistan, especially with India on board seems unlikely at the moment.
“There is no immediate plan this year to play against Pakistan in Pakistan,” added Sumathipala.
