HORRIBLE NEWS...

Sri Lankan Team attacked in Pakistan. Sketchy information coming on the news now. Some players injured - 7 or 8 in hospital. 4 policeman dead. Not much details though and the above given numbers may be different.

Very very disturbing.

Now there are reports that the Sri Lankan team is safe.

But cricket in Pakistan -- bye bye for now. World cup 2011 may suffer.

According to CNN-IBN 3 players are seriously injured ... Thilan Samaraweera, Ajantha Mendis and Kumara Sangakara.

Disgusting is a lesser term ...

Sanga is one of my fav player .. Today morning I was watching one of the finest innings which he played in IPL.

Man .. this is terribly sad news ...

So much for Pakistanis harping on leaving cricket alone and not mixing it with politics.

Lots of different version of news comming up, we need to wait for some more time for confirmed information. Hope everybody is safe.

I'm happy that Indian cricket team didnt travel.

Jayasurya is confident that none of them were directly hit by a bullet, just the debris. Hope that is true.
