Furthermore T20 skipper lasith malinga, Dimuth Karunaratne and Angelo Mathews are among the players who opted out. Meanwhile Sri Lanka was scheduled to visit pakistan for a bilateral series, which included 3 one day internationals and the same number of Twenty20 internationals between September 27 and October 9. Furthermore pakistan had been an isolated destination for international cricket since the 2009 terrorist attack in which gunmen targeted a sri Lanka team bus in Lahore, leaving several cricketers injured.

Moreover families of several sri Lankan players were reportedly uncomfortable with the prospect of the stars playing in pakistan. Apparently an official source in the pakistan cricket Board had told Press Trust of india that pakistan would accept whatever team the sri Lankan board sends and the sri Lankan and pakistan boards had agreed to the limited over series.
