If we look at today’s developments, the training session for today has been cancelled, and the camp has also been called off. The team will leave for Sri Lanka from Lahore on July 6. The Pakistani team’s game will be worth watching in Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan team is considered to be strong on the home grounds, but it has not seen so much strength in the last few years. In such a situation, it has to be seen what kind of match will be between Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
