Sri Lanka are down to play the third and final T20 international in Lahore on October 29, eight years after gunmen attacked the team bus heading to the Qaddafi Stadium there for the third day’s play of the second Test against Pakistan. Six Sri Lankan cricketers were injured.

“As much as we understand the need to help Pakistan at this moment, we need to grasp the mentality of the players here,” said a national cricketer, on condition of anonymity. “It was our team which was directly targeted and even though most of us were not with the team at that time, the scares still haunt us. At this moment, the players are not in favour of touring Pakistan but let’s wait and see.”

Suranga Lakmal, who survived the 2009 attack, recently said that he still has nightmares of the horrific incident which nearly cost his life.
