Sri Lankan cricketers saddened by the terror attacks

The beautiful island of Sri Lanka has encountered an unfortunate tragedy on Sunday after 290 innocent lives were lost in several terrorist attacks in churches and hotels on the occasion of Easter Sunday.

A total of 3 hotels and a couple of churches were targeted which has resulted in a complete lockdown of the whole country. The gruesome acts of violence have been condemned by people from all around the world.

Sri Lankan cricketing fraternity was deeply saddened by the loss of their countrymen as the attack was directed to disrupt peace in the country. Former Sri Lankan skipper Mahela Jayawardene was heart-broken by the terrorist attacks as he urged the people of his nation to stand united and be strong at such a difficult time.

Batting legend Kumar Sangakkara also condemned the terrible attacks in Sri Lanka as he sent out his prayers to the victims and their families along with advising everyone to not fall prey to conspiracy theories at such a sensitive time.
