Colombo: The Sri Lankan team has expressed confidence over the security arrangement for them in Pakistan ahead of the One-day Internationals and as many T20I, starting on September 27.
“I have been there before. I am satisfied with the security arranged for us and I am happy to lead my team to Pakistan. We hope to give a good fight to our very strong hosts,” Sri Lanka T20 International captain Dasun Shanaka.
In 2009, a touring Sri Lankan side was attacked in Lahore. Most of the international teams have refused to tour Pakistan since then.
