The Sri Lankan cricket team one of the morld best cricket team was attacked in Pakistan which resulted in Thilan Samaraweera and Tharanga Paranavitana being hospitalised. The captain Mahela Jayawardene, vice-captain Kumar Sangakkara, Ajantha Mendis, Suranka Lakmal and Chaminda Vaas suffered not so serious injuries but still five police were killed in the attack. There are roumers that say there could be no more international cricket in Pakistan.
The well armed men attacked the Sri Lankans on the way to the 3rd day in the first test in Lahore. the rest of the test series was not played due to security and safety issues. This is said to be anplanned terrorist attack. a few teams have recently refused to tour Pakistan due to security issues and last year’s ICC Champions Trophy was postponed over some similler similar concernes. the Sri Lanka were only in Pakistan after India had been banned by the government from touring the country following the Mumbai terrorist attacks in November 08.
I hope the cricket will return to Pakistan soon and I hope the Sri Lankan cricket team will recover rapidly so the cricket can continue.
