According to a PCB official, the series between Pakistan and Sri Lanka will go ahead as planned
Sri Lanka is facing an economic disaster as the country is facing crippling 12-hour power outages, and an extreme scarcity of food, fuel and other essential items such as medicines.
The deteriorating situation in the country, however, will not impact the cricketing world as Sri Lanka is expected to stick to the ICC schedule which also includes Pakistan's tour.
Pakistan is scheduled to tour Sri Lanka for two Tests and three ODIs. The tour is set to take place in July but the dates and venues are yet to be announced.
Both cricketing boards will convene at a suitable time to iron out the details, it has been reported.
Speaking to Cricket Pakistan, a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official disclosed that Sri Lankan cricketing board remains hopeful of conducting the series as planned.
"The cricketing activities in Sri Lanka are happening. There has been no word from Sri Lanka and the series is scheduled to go as planned," he said.
Sri Lanka recently appointed former England coach Chris Silverwood as their national cricket team's coach. He will replace Mickey Arthur and will conduct his first assignment against a touring Bangladesh side.
