PCB holds farewell ceremony for Shaharyar

Karachi Mayor demands at least one Sri Lanka T20 match in city

He shed light on the illustrious career of Shaharyar Khan and mentioned his working experience with the outgone Chairman PCB.

Ranatunga has accused Sumathipala of involvement in gambling - a charge which would preclude him from a board position at Sri Lanka Cricket - and urged the ICC to investigate. "The company has a good reputation and we are very hopeful they will find all our security arrangements and plan to their satisfaction", Sethi said. The two teams will also lock horns in a lone T20I to be played on September 6.

"It will be a four-day visit where the security company will work with the government of Punjab to get assurances that all the recommendations submitted by security experts of the different countries who visited Lahore to watch the final of the second Pakistan Super League (PSL) season have been incorporated by the government in its SOPs, or not", he said.

"A representative of the Federation of International Cricketers (FICA) will accompany the security company to personally monitor the security situation in Lahore", he said.

The Sri Lankan board statement also quoted Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Najam Sethi saying they had set up state-of-the-art security and surveillance to make their cities safe.

The initiative of hiring an worldwide security agency to assess conduciveness in Pakistan is a two-fold assessment. "We look forward to hosting you and the Sri Lankan team", the PCB wrote on Twitter. He wished his best wishes to the newly elected Chairman PCB and hoped he with his vision and efforts would bring back worldwide cricket to Pakistan.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) president Thilanga Sumathipala has said that he is "keen" to take his national team to Pakistan for the first time since their bus was attacked by gunmen in Lahore.
