    With the work done at the moment I’m not sure that you can play the ODI series on CWC venues. See how they looks like, only 6 weeks to start the game.

      all ground related work have been completed inclusive of the pitches. Pallekele will hostD/N matches during the World Cup. SLC need to provide enough exposure to the National Cricketers in these venues prior to the World Cup.

      tight tour scheduling will not permit teams to travel after every game.
