The news agency was told that the ACC talked with Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), the host Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), and the official presenter before deciding to keep the matches in Colombo itself.
The broadcaster has also talked about how hard it is to move their tools and staff to Hambantota, which is in the far south, in such short notice.
In fact, it was SLC that offered Hambantota as an alternative location for the five Super Fours matches and the final, because the city has been dry for the last few weeks.
