40 players have handed a letter to the board indicating the reluctance of players to tour Pakistan for the last T20 match.

The letter was signed by the complete current squad & contracted players back home, has asked the Sri Lanka cricket board to consider a venue change.

Sri Lanka cricket team bus was attacked in Lahore in 2009 & players were sent back to home & after that incident international cricket teams do not visit Pakistan. Pakistan have to host their home series on a neutral venue in UAE.

"SLC will have a quick chat to the players very soon. We don't intend to disturb them in middle of a series, but we are left with no option but to address the issue. The ICC also will meet the players on Saturday to brief them about the situation in Lahore," Cricbuzz reported, citing an SLC source.

Earlier SLC approved PCB request to send its team to Lahore for the final T20 on 29 October against Pakistan.

Pakistan had successfully hosted PSL 2017 final & Independence Cup in Gaddafi Stadium Lahore this year & they are looking forward to host International cricket teams but unfortunately Sri Lanka players are reluctant to visit Pakistan due to security reasons.
