Why is the tour in danger? The series is in jeopardy after the island nation’s prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said a “emergency state”.
The decision came after the departure of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa from the country. He fled the island nation to the Maldives via a military plane, sparking further protests amid an economic crisis.
It should be noted that thousands of people stormed the Prime Minister’s office. The country’s president has flown to the Maldives after months of widespread protests over an economic crisis.
The president had promised at the end of the week to resign on Wednesday. His official residence in Colombo was taken over by tens of thousands of protesters.
Police have imposed an indefinite curfew across Western Province, which includes Colombo, “to contain the situation”,
Economic crisis in Sri Lanka: Sri Lanka defaulted on its $51 billion foreign debt in April and is in talks with the IMF for a possible bailout. The island has almost exhausted its already scarce supplies of gasoline. The government has ordered the closure of non-essential offices and schools to reduce travel and save fuel.
What can be the fate of the Asian Cup 2022? Since the situation in Sri Lanka is not very good, the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has already asked the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to be on standby. The T20 Cricket Asian Cup is set to be staged from August 27.
It should be noted that Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) had still expressed their willingness to host the tournament. But the current economic and political turmoil in the country has once again raised doubts about the tournament in Sri Lanka.
The final decision will be made by the ACC before the end of the 3rd week of July.
