New Delhi: The Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) is gearing up to host the marquee India versus Pakistan series "purely on goodwill" and "not for any other benefits", said its Interim Committee’s secretary Prakash Schaffter.

"Sri Lanka Cricket has decided to play the hosts for the Indo-Pak series as any good and co-operative neighbour would do. If we are hosting this series, it is an act of goodwill gesture towards our neighbours and not for any kind of financial benefits from this series," Schaffter told PTI from Colombo.

Asked if there could be any financial benefits since the marquee series has a lot of economic viability, Schaffter replied: "This is an Indo-Pak series. Even if you are talking about any revenue benefits, it would not be anything substantial for us."
