Someone in Pak was going to stop cricketing ties with India just because we refrained from visiting Pak to play Test match cricket there.
I hope he has his foot in his mouth.

Champoins trophy will go to SA. The world cup will be held in India and SL with both nations sharing Pak matches. It will be slightly tough to shift the venue totally coz of th emoney involved. Plus another 2+ years to go.

But cricket in Pakistan is a goner, for sure. Imagine had this been the England/Aussie team. It would have been mayehem, and not without reason.

What a shame !!! Pak seems to be digging it's own grave.

Even the innocent sports players are not safe. It is the END of Pak I feel in many fields.

Even BBC is reporting this as Big time news. America & Europe is going to take this very seriously.

This is surely the last series that Pakistan will ever host. Also the end of the tourism industry in Pakistan.
Horrible for the cricketers and horrible for the moderate and peace loving people of Pakistan.

What I don't understand is why SL decided to tour PAK? Maybe they wanted to show India that look at us we support PAK!

They got a big Thank You from PAK now.

Its well and truly RIP Cricket in PAK.

Our dear friend Javed Miandad is an optimist. Quoting him from cricinfo:

The world will have to stay united and fight terrorism. I hope they just don’t say they won’t tour Pakistan. If we do that we will only support the terrorists’ cause."

Following is a list of the injured players with brief details of their injuries according to vice-captain Kumar Sangakkara, who spoke by telephone from Lahore.

* Mahela Jayawardena - cut to ankle, minor

* Ajantha Mendis - shrapnel wound to back, minor
* Tharanga Paranavithana - shrapnel wound to his chest, minor, but went to hospital

Relief...

Thanks diabloo for adding those details.

It could have been really sad if any of these injuries could have threatened their careers.

The SL Team went there to "teach" BCCI a lesson when the later cancelled the India Tour in the aftermath of the Mumbai Massacare. Both the boards dont like the BCCI's power in International Cricket.

I didn't know about the attack till Indian innings ended. Then got a sms from a friend about the attack. Today is one rare moment when India has won and am feeling no joy whatsoever. Imagine our players could have been in place of SL cricketers(some of them i like immensely).
Q's to be asked-
1.- Was there enough security for the players?
2.- The route is kept under wraps and only top officials know about that so how did terrorist know- mole in the dept.
3.- When Indian govt refused to send its players why SL didn't analyse the situation completely.
4.- Will the world now sit up and declare Pakistan a terrorist country and stop all the supplies and generous contributions.
If Mumbai attacks shook the Pak this could be the nail in their head.
Sad. very sad. Thankfully noone is dead or seriously injured.
Ya India win today but that seems so insignificant right now.


@Spitfire- Now probably the ICC and All the boards will stop ego clashes and look towards the cricket and the players properly.

Arjuna Ranatunga is the one behind this tour, he should be sacked first. How dare he risk the lives of the players !

Because they always like to be one-up on India & this was a golden opportunity. Only - it backfired.
