Famed commentator and former Pakistan skipper Ramiz Raja lashed out at Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) as well as the ten players who had announced their withdrawal from the upcoming series in Pakistan.

While sharing his views on his Youtube channel, Raja said “The threat level regarding the security in Pakistan is similar to what it is in Sri Lanka or for that matter in New Zealand.”

“It boggles my mind as to why Thisara Perera, who has been to Pakistan recently with the World XI side and have experienced the full-proof security provided to the players, would refuse to tour,” he added.

Raja to question the SLC’s lack of communication throughout the situation and expressed that there needed to be more transparency between the players and the board.

“Pakistan have always helped Sri Lanka in difficult times, whether it be during the 1996 World Cup or recently when PCB sent their Under-19 team after Colombo bomb blasts,” he said. “It is important for countries in the Asian Bloc to support each other as our cricket fraternity is quite small,” Raja continued.
