Chalk another one up for the religion of peace....

Hopefully this will shut the international cricket community who were pushing for matches to be played in Pakistan.

I'm sure if the Aussies hadn't told them to ram it, that the ECB (weak and spineless gits they are) would have forced England players to go to Pakistan.

I know the Pakistanis are cheating gits, but I didn't think they would stoop this low to win a match!

The route was changed and they were still successfull in their attack and all 12 escaped. Was it leaked or just a case of follow that big bus??

Valid point, but Sky news seems to be all over this today. I think the 'route change' was minor, as the hotel may have been close to the ground, giving limited scope. The bus driver drove through and onwards to the relative safety of the ground, presumable immediatly.

Sky are talking about 'well trained terrorists' but from the pictures of the attack that seems to be stretching it a bit, and the fact that they failed to hit the target properly (the Sri Lankan team). I suspect it was well planned but the attackers were a bit biff- like in execution.

Were the attackers tipped off? Perhaps but they seem to have been well spread out leading me to suspect that they were felxible, or even fluid, in planing.

Editted to add.
It doesnt really matter as this is being reported all over the world so perhaps failing to kill the Sri Lankan team matters not...

Well apparently some police officers died. So thoughts go out to them. I couldn't think of a worse morning trundling along in a police car and a big team bus behind and then it all kicks off. Would you go play IPL in india in a few months?

If people hadn't died, I bet Ian 'It's the sort of place I wouldn't send my mother-in-law' Botham would be smiling into his cereal.

OK - I'll place a fiver on it being an Al-Q splinter group of evil muftis using the attack as an excuse to take a dig at the Pakistani Government for it's recent support to Sri-Lanka in their 2009 offensive to polish off Al-Q's mates in the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam.

And I'll lay down another fiver on a complete outside bet on India's Research & Analysis Wing for a false flag op in response to Mumbai and to address growing Pakistani influences with the Sri-Lanka government who are battling against those who topped off Rajiv Ghandi.

Certainly not cricket though.

Well do the cricketers get a return match? Must be there turn to bat next.
You joke, but i wouldn't be surprised. Cricket is as big a thing in Sri Lanka as it is in Pakistan and India.

The Tamil Tigers might want to have game.
