The owner of Peshawar Zalmi, Javed Afridi, has come forward in support of the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), which has been suffering lately due to the political and financial crisis in the island nation. So far, the circumstances have not been favouring the fraternity, as a result of which, not only cricket but all sporting areas there are in trouble.
Seeking the situation, Javed penned out a note on his Twitter. Acknowledging the craze of cricket among Sri Lankan fans, the PZ owner stated he will do all in his control to sponsor SLC for the betterment and not to suffer amidst all the crises.
The people of Sri Lanka love cricket as dearly as we Pakistanis do but the current not so good situation must’ve hurt Lankans cricket fans. So I extend my full support to the sponsor @OfficialSLC in the best of my capacities to maintain their international status in the world cricket area.

Recently, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has also talked about their friendship with SLC and said that the PCB stands with SLC in hard times. In fact, both domains have been there for each other in harder times.
The PCB Media Director Sami ul Hasan Burney further commented that SLC is deciding whether to host upcoming home series in Sri Lanka or choose any neutral venue for these.
"We have a strong relationship with the Sri Lankan Board, and the two countries have always supported each other in difficult situations.
"SLC, viewing its circumstances, would take a decision which will be accepted, including playing on their grounds or neutral venue,"
