knowledge at its pinnacle

Some people’s advice will only add vice to your life

Srilankan cricketers injured!!

The Sri Lanka cricketers were on their way to the Gaddafi stadium when their bus was attacked by 12 armed terrorists near Liberty market. A grenade was also thrown at the bus but it missed.

Jayawardene said the players just wanted to spend time with their families now. “I am a Buddhist and I think we have done some merit in our previous birth to escape with minor injuries.” He also said the attack on the team could have happened anywhere and could not be pinned down to Pakistan. “In the future, I think all of us will step back and look at the bigger picture besides just touring abroad, taking into account our families.”

Muttiah Muralitharan said he saw images of his life flashing by when the bus came under attack. “All the while bullets were being sprayed at our bus, people around me were shouting. I am glad to be back.”

While most of the players had minor injuries, Thilan Samaraweera and Tharanga Paravitana had to be taken to hospital for their wounds in Lahore.
