Emergency in Lanka but India’s T20 tri-series to go on

Sri Lanka has declared a state of emergency for 10 days to rein in the spread of communal violence, a day after Buddhists and Muslims clashed in the Indian Ocean island's central district of Kandy

Colombo/New Delhi: The BCCI today said the T20 tri-series in Sri Lanka, also involving the Indian team, will continue despite the country plunging into a state of emergency following communal violence.

The BCCI has confirmed that the “situation is perfectly normal in Colombo” where the tournament is taking place, hours before India were to take on the hosts in the opening fixture of Nidahas Trophy at Premadasa Stadium.

“There have been reports of curfew and an emergency being called in Sri Lanka. The situation in the picture is in Kandy and not Colombo. This is to notify everyone that after talking to concerned security personnel (Ministerial security division – in charge of team security), we have understood that the situation is completely normal in Colombo. If at all there is an update on the same we shall notify,” Indian team’s media cell issued an official press note from Colombo.

Sri Lanka has declared a state of emergency for 10 days to rein in the spread of communal violence, a day after Buddhists and Muslims clashed in the Indian Ocean island’s central district of Kandy.

BCCI’s acting president C K Khanna said, “The Indian board is in constant touch with the Sri Lankan government authorities. The security is foolproof and we have been assured that there is no threat to the tournament. So the Indian team, as of now, will be playing the tournament.”

The government decision to declare emergency came after a Buddhist man was killed and a mob set fire to a Muslim-owned shop.

In Sri Lanka, out of its 21 million population, Buddhists Sinhalese make up for nearly 75%, 13% of the population are Hindus while Muslim community makes up for around 10%.
