SLC sends security delegation to Lahore



Pakistan media reports that a security delegation from Sri Lanka will reach Lahore today (25) to inspect the security arrangements for Twenty20 match to be played between the two team on 29th of October.

The Sri Lankan security delegation during their visit will be given detailed briefings on the arrangements and shown dress rehearsals by the concerned security officials in Lahore.

The delegation will also visit the team hotel and ground to see all arrangements beforehand before they report back to their board and the government after which clearance will be given to the Sri Lankan team to fly from Dubai to Lahore.

The Sri Lankan delegation is also expected to be given a detailed briefing on Lahore safe city project at its office in Qurban Lines, where the delegation will be able to see the live footage of all the routes and the venue.

The Sri Lankan team's visit is seen as very significant by the PCB and fans as it was after militants attacked the Sri Lankan team in Lahore in March 2009 that international teams stopped visiting Pakistan because of security concerns.

The Sri Lanka T20 squad will be led by all-rounder Thisara Perera after a number of regulars including skipper Upul Tharanga opted to skip the match.

Then Sri Lanka Cricket authorities named a new look team for the entire series.

The 3-match T20 series will begin tomorrow at the UAE.
