Karachi:

With Sri Lanka refusing to tour Pakistan, the PCB Board has lost hopes of hosting international cricket teams in the country in near future.

PCB was hopeful of hosting Sri Lanka later this year but the killing of Osama Bin Laden in Abottabad and the terrorist attack on naval base in Karachi have dashed all their hopes.

"There is nothing much we can do in the existing circumstances, except keep on trying to convince teams to come to Pakistan. Before the Osama bin Laden incident we were pretty confident that we could convince the Sri Lankans to at least play a few matches of their series in Pakistan this year," a senior official of the board told PTI.

"But that has changed in the last few weeks. This only meant fresh concerns for other boards about sending their teams to Pakistan," he said.
