Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has sought clarification over Zimbabwean cricket board contemplating to drop hosting the series against Lanka in October-November 2013.

“We received an e-mail from the Zimbabwe Cricket Union (ZCU) seeking a postponement of the tour and the reason given was ‘due to unavoidable circumstances’,” SLC secretary Nishantha Ranatunga was quoted as saying by Reuters.

Unconfirmed reports state that the Zimbabwe Cricket Union (ZCU) do not have the budget to host a third series in succession after hosting India earlier in July and the ongoing series against Pakistan.

Sri Lanka were scheduled to play two Tests, three ODIs and two T20s from October 6 to November 4.
