Ahead of going to Pakistan, a lot of security planning took place, as the International series is taking place after a long time. All the players were given a solid security to make things fall in place. Meanwhile, the opening batsman of Sri Lanka Danushka Gunathilaka is pretty happy with the way security was offered for the players.
Last night, with a nice 13-run victory, the Sri Lankan team has returned from Pakistan to their country. It was a fantastic tour for the young Sri Lankan side, as they outsmarted Pakistan in all sections of the game, as far as a T20I series is concerned. However, as far as 50-over format is considered, Pakistan easily thrashed the Sri Lankan team.
Excellent safety measures – Danushka Gunathilaka
Danushka Gunathilaka, in his tweet, commended the efforts of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for bringing back international cricket to their peaceful nation. The Sri Lankan board also lauded the crowd for showing respect to the visiting team.
Digging into his tweet, it read ”End of a very special tour.Kudos to @TheRealPCB for bringing back intl cricket to their fans. Great hospitality. Excellent security measures. Hope every other country will visit here soon.Pakistan is safe to play cricket & their fans deserve it!

It was an incredible series for Sri Lanka, as they achieved their first-ever whitewash in the shorter format of the game. And, the special highlight is that they achieved the victory with a young side, as the likes of Lasith Malinga, Niroshan Dickwella hesitated to travel Pakistan alongside the other key players.
In all the three matches, someone or the other stood for the team during the crunch situations of the game. However, as far as the bowling department, Isuru Udana, Rajitha and Hasaranga have been sensational for Sri Lanka.
