Sri Lanka has had more then its share of tragedies, and it appears that the country is heading into civil war again. A bomb blast in central Columbo today has killed seven people and puts into question the triangular tournament that was due to start today. Sadly, the ability of Sri Lanka to host international cricket events has to be in some doubt.
It seems that the Tamil Tiger rebel group has ruled out peace talks, which is just tragic, given the optimism that was so prevelant in the country just a few years ago. In the circumstances, international cricket will be the least of the victims of the fighting.
