Meanwhile, Sri Lanka's limited-overs captain Upul Tharanga has reportedly pulled out of the Lahore T20I due to security concerns and it is likely that the board would not consider him for first two matches as well.

The board announced Monday that it would go ahead with the tour and "confirmed its commitment to play the third T20" in Lahore after assessments by government agencies, independent security experts and the International Cricket Council.

Earlier, Sri Lanka's players had indicated strong reluctance to visit Pakistan for the third and final T20I.

Thisera Parera, who was part of the World XI team that visited Pakistan in September for the Independence Cup, did not sign the letter, CricBuzz said.

SLC chief Thilanga Sumathipala will accompany the team to Lahore, the statement added.

Truck bomb kills at least 20 in Somali capital
At least 20 people are dead and 15 injured following a powerful explosion from a truck bomb on a busy road in the Somali capital. The explosion was followed by gunfire between security forces and armed men around and inside the popular Safari Hotel.

"Having been fully satisfied with the stringent security measures in place, the SLC ExCo unanimously made a decision to play the 3rd T20 in Lahore on the 29th October", the SLC said in the statement.

The victory gives Pakistan a 2-0 lead after three instalments of the five-match series.

But last month Pakistan hosted three Twenty20 internationals against a World XI in the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

According to a Cricbuzz report, Tharanga's withdrawal also makes him ineligible to play in the first two T20 global matches of the series in the UAE as selectors had earlier announced that they would pick one squad for all the T20 worldwide matches versus Pakistan.

After a clinical win in the first ODI it is time for Pakistan cricket team to enjoy some good time, as the team celebrated the birthday of middle order batsman, Babar Azam, as the Lahore born turned 23 on Sunday. Thisara Perera, now part of the ODI squad in the UAE, was Sri Lanka's only representative in those matches.
