ECB Offers Condolences To Victims Of Lahore Attack

The England & Wales Cricket Board has issued a statement both condemning the 'senseless' attacks on the Sri Lankan players and offering their condolences to those who lost their lives in the attack.

"The ECB is shocked and saddened by the senseless attack on the Sri Lankan cricketers and match officials by terrorists in Lahore today," the statement read.

Around 14 masked gunmen attacked the Sri Lankans as they made their way to the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, killing policemen, a bus driver and leaving players and officials wounded.

"Our thoughts are with the families of those who have been killed or injured in this despicable attack," the statement concluded.
