He rejected Pakistan Minister Fawad Hussain Chaudhry's reasoning which was aimed at an IPL influence which prompted leading Sri Lankan players pull out of the upcoming tour.

Sri Lanka are scheduled to play three ODIs and three T20Is against Pakistan in Pakistan.

Miandad advised that "we [Pakistan] must not bother with which players would travel to Pakistan and instead focus on playing at our best in the series".

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said Wednesday it "reiterates its commitment to provide complete safety and security to" Sri Lankan cricket team. Pakistan has always been a huge support for SL cricket.

Karachi's National Stadium will host the ODI series beginning September 27, while the three T20i's would be played at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore, starting October 5.

"Informed sports commentators told me that India threatened SL players that they will be ousted from IPL if they don't refuse Pak visit, this is really cheap tactic, jingoism from sports to space is something we must condemn, really cheap on the part of Indian sports authorities", Chaudhry had tweeted on Tuesday.

Sri Lanka named depleted squads for a six-match tour of Pakistan after 10 top players opted out citing security concerns.

Pakistan did not host global cricket for six years following the 2009 attack, with the team playing their home matches in the United Arab Emirates, but have hosted teams such as Zimbabwe and West Indies in recent years. The players who opted out of the series are - Lasith Malinga, Niroshan Dickwella, Kusal Janith Perera, Dhananjaya De Silva, Thisara Perera, Akila Dhananjaya, Angelo Mathews, Suranga Lakmal, Dinesh Chandimal and Dimuth Karunaratne.

The Sri Lankan cricket board says it has been warned about a possible terrorist threat during its planned tour of Pakistan and called for a reassessment of the security situation before play starts in two weeks.

Cricket in Pakistan came to a halt in 2009, after the Sri Lanka team was attacked by gunmen on the way to the ground in Lahore.

Though, the security situation in Pakistan is far from being completely normal even after the 2009 attack.
