Sri Lanka tour of Pakistan : Cricketers felicitated 12 days after return

Sri Lanka’s history-making T20 cricketers returned from the tour of Pakistan last week, but their keepers or employer decided to felicitate them 12 days after arrival at what appeared to be a hastily arranged function at its headquarters yesterday.

It only added to the controversy created since the return of the players after Sri Lanka Cricket president Shammi Silva displeased Pakistan by saying the ensuing Test series may not take place in Pakistan as he referred to players’ wives and “biological and shopping needs” which may not have been possible due to high security and confinement to their hotel. The media was notified of yesterday’s team felicitation just four hours before the function.
