Sri Lanka blind cricket team to arrive Pakistan tomorrow


ISLAMABAD: The Sri Lankan blind cricket team will land in Pakistan on Friday (April 1) to play Twenty-20 and One Day series against their Pakistani counterparts.

Pakistan Blind Cricket Council (PBCC) hopes the two series will highlight the soft image of Pakistan and consequently encourage other countries that Pakistan is safe for sports, says a press release issued here.

The 18-member Sri Lankan blind cricket contingent will land at the Allama Iqbal International Airport, Lahore, on Friday. The contingent includes players and officials.

The Sri Lankan team will play three Twenty20s and as many as ODIs from April 1 to 12 in different cities of Pakistan.

Previously, the 3 ODIs were scheduled to take place at Bahawalpur but now will be played in Gujranwala and Lahore.

The first and second ODI will be played on April 7 and 8 in Jinnah Stadium Gujranwala while the third ODI will be played in Gaddafi Stadium Lahore on April 10. The three T20s will be played as scheduled on April 3, 4 and 5 at Iqbal Stadium Faisalabad.
