Napier (New Zealand): Bollywood actress Preity Zinta was shaken by the attack on Sri Lankan players in Lahore. “This is a really an unfortunate incident for sports in general. My prayers go out for all players in the Sri Lankan team, not just for those who played for us in the IPL. There have been some crazy stories doing the rounds and we don’t know what’s true and what’s not. I just hope everyone is safe. It is one of the darkest days in cricket history.
“Nobody will be happy with incidents such as these. Sport is about excellence on a human level. I feel really sad and just hope and pray that everyone is fine,” said Ms. Zinta, owner of IPL franchisee Kings Eleven Punjab. She is in New Zealand to watch the Indian cricket team. — PTI
