A day after Pakistan minister Fawad Hussain's accusation that India pressurized the Sri Lankan players to boycott Pakistan tour, Sri Lankan minister Harin Fernando retaliated. He said that the 10 top players opted out of the Pakistan tour due to the 2009 incident. Sri Lanka never visited Pakistan after that attack, and this time also players have decided based on that and India has nothing to do with that decision.
