“That was my first tour with the Sri Lankan team. I don’t like to talk about that day because I still have nightmares of that incident. I thought I was going to die that day. We were lucky. Lord Buddha saved us,” Lakmal told Cricbuzz in an interview, recollecting the incident that happened eight years ago.
“The other problem is that I can’t get an MRI scan done. If I do an MRI on my left leg it comes blank. I am not too sure whether I will ever remove it. Once I am done with cricket I will consult the surgeons and see. If they feel that it is not harmful for my body, I will let it be,” Lakmal added.
The final Twenty20 International of the ongoing series is set to be played in Lahore. When asked if he will visit Pakistan again, Lakmal said: “We have to decide as a team and whatever the decision the team takes, I will abide by it. I have never worked on my whims and fancies. I am a team man. If I get selected and if the team is willing to go, then I will be on that flight,” he noted.
