Bomb blast at 2nd test - Faisalabad

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Watching Sky sports 2 - England 92/2 - and play interupted by an explosion on the boundary by the advertising hoardings. Pundits are saying bomb, but it seems to me like it was of large firecracker similar to a thunderflash. There is not a great deal of damage and very few members of the crowd are injured and the injuries appear to be minor. Were it a bomb, or even a grenade, the injuries should be greater.

    Only an hour until stumps so play will probably be abandoned.
  2. A gas cannister apparently (Aggers), play just restarting.
  3. It was a hell of a bang.

    Still on schedule to go down the pub at 1130. Retirement a bitch.

    England 92/2 (Trescothick 42, Bell 29)
