Sri Lankan cricketers have been injured in a terrorist attack on their team bus in Pakistan. This includes Sangakarra who is the best batsman in the world. UFB!Nothing is sacred to these blood-thirsty tribesman it seems. Good on Cricket Australia for protecting our players and refusing to go to Pakistan.
Sad day for this increasingly politicised game.

"We are assessing the situation,'' Pakistan cricket board chief Ejaz Butt said.
