Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) clarified the delay faced by the national cricket team that travelled to Zimbabwe for the World Cup qualifiers, after several cricketers shared images on social media of them waiting to be checked-in into the hotel in Bulawayo. 

Images shared on the verified accounts of Sadeera Samarawickrama and Maheesh Theekshana shows several players seated on the ground as they waited to be checked in. 

The images, shared via Instagram Stories, have since been deleted.

“The Sri Lankan team has arrived at the hotel today at noon, and at the time of the entry, another national cricket team, who arrived just before the Sri Lankan team, was in the process of “checking in.’,” a media statement released by SLC read. 

“This situation resulted in a delay in some of the Sri Lankan National Team players being “checked in.’”

“However, SLC, after reporting this matter to the hotel management, was able to rectify the issue within a short period of time,” SLC also said in its statement.
