Samaraweera, Centurion, Takes Shrapnel in Chest

Cricinfo reports that Thilan Samaraweera, who scored a century the day before during the 2nd Test, was among the most seriously injured:

Our sources tell us Samaraweera and Paravitarana were the ones most seriously injured and have been taken to hospital. they had shrapnel wounds in the chest and hamstring which have been dressed and they are doing fine.

Meanwhile, in New Zealand, the Indian team took to the field wearing black arm bands. Remember that the Sri Lankan team had stepped in to replace the Indians, which had pulled out after the Mumbai terrorist attacks. It’s clear now, as one Twitter commenter put it, that Pakistani cricket is over for the forseeable future.
