Well, Broad went overboard by saying there was hardly any security. While luck was on their side as a rocket missed the bus and 2 grenades failed to explode, 6 cops got killed in the shoot out. He does have a point.

Yes the level of security could have been higher but no one thought terrorist would go this far to target SL players.

Broads comments were idiotic; typical snob. Compare that to the Sri lankan players' comments which were more professional. He accused the police of running away when 6 of them got killed. Still living in Raj days....

From his viewpoint, he is dead right. He has seen death in front of his eyes (the driver was shot dead), fellow umpire bleeding to death and everybody lying on the floor waiting to be shot. The paltry untrained security force (police) was already dead or injured and the terrorists were firing bullets at their will. What do you expect him to say?

There was no one protecting them after the first wave of bullets. Have you seen the TV footage? No bullets were coming towards the terrorists, every bullet was aimed towards the players and umpires. After the player bus fled the scene, the remaining security went with them leaving the match officials behind. It was the match officials who were targeted like sitting ducks. I fully spport Broad and Taufel, they were denied sufficient security in their time of need.

What a carnage! Still can't believe myself. Umpire Simon Toufel was almost crying in the press conference in Sidney airport. What a shock for him watching terrorists firing at them..oh! Horrible.

I agree with Alien..PCB (Ijaz and Miandad) are going overboard in accusing the victim ! There is no reason for Board or Taufel to be gracious , I would do the same.Coommon guys this is not a game of cricket where you have to be gracious in victory or defeat.They were been shot at without an iota of resistance.

Forget Presidential level security ..our local MLA gets more security.I might sount vindictive and I agree that one should not hit one (Pakistan) when down and out but I am simply pissed at the stupid PCB officials.Not only do they boch up but want the victims to cover their a$$.

It was no way near to presidential security as they promised. Promises haven't been met, that's frustrating. There could be attacks even after the best possible security, but then people won't be that pissed off, as it is now. PCB really needed to live upto their promises, it's an international affair & not like that you can make and break promises with your own people everyday.

Broad was completely justified IMO. How can a terrorist get the opportunity to fire the second shot if there is security? And what they have done was like the heroes of Hindi movies, one sided affairs.

First of all condolences to the family members of those brave policemen and the mini bus driver who lost thier lives while trying to save the cricketers. Also a big thank you to the other members of police and the main bus driver. Thank you to Chris Broad for his bravery

S Lankan cricketers are generally the nicest people in our sport so for these terrorists to target them is beyond horrible.

One of the main accused in the terror attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in 2009 in Lahore has claimed that Lashkar-e-Jhangvi had plan to take the visiting players hostage and bargain for the release of some of its detained members.

Abdul Wahab alias Omar, who is under detention, told Geo News that the operation against the Sri Lankan team was planned in Waziristan.

"The operation was planned in Waziristan and there were 12 of us designated for this mission. I belonged to the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi Amjad Farooqi group," the bearded Wahab dressed in a white shalwar kameez said.

He said the purpose of the attack at the Liberty roundabout was to take the Sri Lankan players hostage.

"We were supposed to take them hostage and then our superiors would have bargained their release in exchange for some of our companions in their custody," Wahab said.

He said the attackers arrived at Liberty roundabout just minutes before the arrival of the Sri Lankan team bus.

"We came in a rickshaw and on motorcycles that we had purchased for this operation," said Wahab, who has received training in Waziristan.

Five Sri Lankan players were injured and six Pakistani policemen and a van driver were killed in the attack in March, 2009, which led to foreign teams turning down tour to Pakistan and the ICC also moving the World Cup matches away from the country due to security concerns.

Pakistani authorities have made several arrests in the case.

Wahab said the men behind the attack had fled to Waziristan immediately after the attack.

"We got our ammunition and guns in Lahore a day before the operation was carried out," he added.

The attack was botched up after the driver of the Sri Lankan team bus managed to drive the bus through to the Gaddafi stadium in a hail of bullets. Wahab said that he was stationed behind the bus and fired at it repeatedly to ensure it stopped there.

am sorry if you felt offended ... the WW3 was a joke. Beside that yea it's a very hardcore issue. If they are freely admiting that their initial goal was to kidnap the players and exchange them for their own men then this is a serius issue.
