Sri Lankan cricket team, which was attacked in Pakistan back in 2009, visited Pakistan yet again to play three ODIs and three 3 T20I matches.
The team visited Karachi and Lahore for the limited-over series and fans across Pakistan are thanking the Sri Lankan players and management for reviving the trend of international cricket in the country.
Shehan Jayasuriya, a Sri Lankan player, wore a jersey of Pakistan cricket team and uploaded the image on his social media and captioned it with:
The Pakistanis have reacted with love and heartfelt messages for Jayasuria, including Pakistan’s pacer Wahab Riaz.
Thank you #Pakistan … for the hospitality, safe environment, tight security, and support. Hope to come back soon and hope other countries will follow us as well. @TheRealPCB #SLvPAK #PAKvSL pic.twitter.com/EXJuj9NkIe

"It's a good victory. Thanks to the Pakistan crowd, they supported not just the home team but us as well. All the players bond well in our team and that is our key to success. They are very talented and I think unity is the secret behind our success." – Dasun Shanka #PAKvSL pic.twitter.com/w7RAk0L9rd
