Sanga says touring Pakistan is an ‘individual decision’



Former Sri Lanka skipper Kumar Sangakkara says touring Pakistan should be an individual decision of the players in the Sri Lankan side.

He said, "There has to be an open dialogue between the PCB, the Sri Lankan Cricket Board, and the ICC and of course the Federation of International Cricketers’ Association".

He said they should come together and there should be transparency in all the information provided to the respective teams, the respective officials and of course to the families of the teams so that the players can make up their own mind.

“Once they have spoken to the ICC representative, and the representatives of all the organizations (the SLC, the PCB, and FICA), the players can have a clear idea about the security arrangement and the ground reality. They can make up their mind on whether to tour or not" he added.

The former Sri Lanka skipper was one of the players in the bus attacked by terrorists on March 3, 2009, during an ongoing series against Pakistan.

Sri Lanka is scheduled to play the last match of 3-match T20 series in Lahore.

Already regular skipper Upul Tharanga and Lasith Malinga have informed of their unavailability due to security concerns.
