Back in 2009, Sri Lankan players were attacked outside the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore and Most of the Cricket players were also injured in the attack but as the bus driver drove the bus quickly they have luckily escaped from the death trap.
Immediately, after the attack, the series was called off to an end and the Cricketers flew back to Sri Lanka. From then no series is played on Pakistan soil and almost after 10 years, a decade. once again Sri Lanka Cricket Board has agreed for a tour in Pakistan.
After 10 years now a Test series is played on Pakistan soil with Sri Lanka. In this time after finishing the second test match with Sri Lanka, PCB Chairman Ehsan Mai has made a controversial statement regarding the security in India and showed his concern.
“We have proved Pakistan is safe, if someone isn’t coming then they should prove that it’s unsafe. At this time, India is a far greater security risk than Pakistan,” said Ehsan Mai
“No one should now doubt security arrangements in Pakistan after successful Sri Lanka Test series. This is a turning point for revival of Test cricket in Pakistan. Media and fans played an important role in portraying positive image of Pakistan worldwide,” Mani was quoted as saying during a press interaction in Rawalpindi after the second Test.

Arun Dhamal reacts to his statement:
for this BCCI Treasurer Arun Dhamal gave an aggressive reply which states he has no right to comment on the security in India and even in Pakistan has he mostly lives in London.
“For a person who stays mostly in London, it is inappropriate for him to comment anything on India’s security. He is not even eligible to comment on Pakistan’s security. He hardly stays there. If he gets to spend more time in Pakistan, he would get to understand the real situation there,” Dhuman was quoted as saying in an interview with Hindustan Times.
