The third and last match of T20 series between Pakistan and Lanka will be played tomorrow, Wednesday.
“This Lankan teams tour is of greater significant as the visiting team which met a terrorists attack here in 2009 is again touring Pakistan and it will send a positive message to the other cricket playing countries that things have become conducive as far security is concerned for staging international cricket in Pakistan”, said the former stylish middle order batsman.
