    Bomb blast in Colombo near Indian team hotel

    I just saw this on the news here in India that not even 10 mins ago there was a bomb blast right next to the hotel where the Indian team is staying.

    I just saw on the news that BCCI will have a meeting today to decide if the Indian team will be called back from Sri Lanka or not

    The Kiwis didn't hang round when one went off near them in Pakistan, I think that one might have been almost right outside though.

    You have got it wrong, just coz we live there doesn't contribute to the fact that we are used to the bombs.. At home we feel safe as you have your own personal security and so on and there is alot more support offered, whereas when you are in a different country its just not the same..

    So i won't be surprised to see if India cancels this series unless extra protection or something is taken care off..
