Sri Lanka says it received terror warnings ahead of Pakistan tour

COLOMBO: Sri Lanka 's cricket board said on Wednesday (Sep 11) it had received warnings its national team could be the target of a terror attack ...

Sri Lankan Prime Minister's Office had received"reliable information of a possible terrorist threat" against the national squad ahead of the six-match limited overs tour, the board said.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) stopped short of calling off the tour, but said a reassessment of the security situation would be sought from Sri Lankan government authorities.

"The PCB reiterates its commitment to provide complete safety and security to the SL side and in this relation will continue to work with the SLC."

The Sri Lanka team was the target of an attack during a Test match in Pakistan's Lahore in March 2009. Six Sri Lankan players were injured when gunmen attacked their bus. Six Pakistan policemen and two civilians were killed.

The latest statement from Sri Lanka Cricket came a short while after the board announced two squads for the three One-Day Internationals and the three T20 matches starting Sep 27.
