Though Sri Lanka has managed to host the series against Australia successfully, there are huge concerns regarding the upcoming Asia Cup and the Pakistan tour.

Sri Lanka Cricket however is of a different opinion. Mohan de Silva, the secretary of the board in a conversation with ESPNcricinfo has claimed that cricket in the country has remained immune despite all the political unrest in the country.
