Well well well. What do you know. Upul Tharanga has pulled out of the last T20 that is scheduled to take place in Lahore saying security concerns. Well if you go back in time, it was the Sri Lankan team that suffered the wrath of some senseless violence at the hands of anti social elements. They have every right to say no. They are justified.
Earlier 40 players signed a letter saying they do not want to play in Lahore. Many relented and changed their minds. Wonder what could have changed it for them. The Pakistan Government has promised absolute security (probably Z or something) and Sri Lanka do not want to ruin their relationship with Pakistan.
The third ODI takes place on 18th October in UAE. with a highest total of 313 and lowest 63, this ground has everything a batsman would like. Sri Lanka has lost nine ODI in a row. They had their chance in their 2nd ODI but did not take it. But they did win both test matches. So that does count for something. 2nd ODI - Shadab Khan won the man of the match. Azam was the hero as well.
