Former captain of Pakistan cricket team JavedMiandad has said that the Sri Lankan cricket board should be fined for their experienced cricketers who refuse to tour Pakistan. Miandad also said that the absence of some Sri Lankan players will not affect the series. Furious at the Sri Lankan players, Miandad advised the Pakistan cricketers to pay attention to the series and apply their full strength to win. Pak players should leave no stone unturned in their preparations for this series. This should not be an issue for the players, which Sri Lankan player is not coming on this tour. They should just do their best.
Miandad says that international matches should be the first priority for the players and the Sri Lankan Cricket Board should impose fines on players who have refused to go on Pak tour due to security reasons. Earlier Sri Lankan T20 international captain LasithMalinga, Angelo Mathews and DimuthKarunaratne were among 10 players who withdrew from the Pakistan tour due to the threat of terror. It is worth noting that the Sri Lankan team has to play three ODIs and three T20 matches from September 27 to October 9 in Pakistan.
