'Sri Lanka can play ODIs in Pakistan,' Sri Lankan sports ministry

Sri Lankan sports ministry has suggested that their national team can play One Day Internationals in Pakistan and can tour in January.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was looking to revive Test cricket in the country and they had invited Sri Lankan team to play the two five-day matches of their upcoming tour in Karachi and Lahore.

Recently, Sri Lanka’s security team toured Pakistan and gave a positive report to the concerned authorities of their country. The chances were bright for the PCB to host a couple of Test matches.

However, recently the Sri Lankan sports ministry has advised to just stick to the ODI cricket for now, Sri Lanka Cricket will make a decision after discussing the issues.

Pakistan last hosted a Test match in 2009 that too against Sri Lanka before terrorists attacked the tourists in Lahore when they were on their way to Gaddafi Stadium to play the third day of their second Test.
