Pakistani cricketers taking part in the ongoing Lanka Premier League will be provided extra security in the wake of lynching of a Sri Lankan man in Sialkot on Friday.

According to media reports circulating in Sri Lanka, Sri Lankan authorities have decided to beef up security for the Pakistani players to avoid any mishap that might stem from the sentiments of the people of the country.

Nine Pakistani players, including Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Wahab Riaz and Sohaib Maqsood, are taking part in the event, which runs from December 5-23.
