Colombo:

With the security situation worsening in Pakistan with every passing day, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has made it clear that it will not send the national team to the strife-torn country until and unless it gets safety clearance.

Pakistan's chances of hosting the bilateral series received a severe blow last night when armed terrorits attacked at a military base in Karachi, which is very close to the National Stadium.

"We have received requests from Pakistan over the past three or four months. The PCB told us that they would like to host our team as scheduled in the FTP. We told them our stance that we need security clearance first before sending a team there again," SLC secretary Nishantha Ranatunga was quoted as saying by cricinfo.
