Dambulla's shame

by Hilal

The uncouth behavior of a few can tarnish the good name of many.

The Indians after their well deserved victory in the 2nd ODI were pelted by plastic bottles by a group of Sri Lankan spectators.

Although a huge police presence was seen at Dambulla no arrests were made.

Recall seeing a group of Indian spectators with yellow shirts and red wigs on?

Sri Lankans who were sitting beside them report that they too were attacked with pellets and coins by a group of Lankan youth.

A very sad state of affairs, as Sri Lankans we have always been excellent hosts to our foreign guests - one of the primary reasons we excelled in the hospitality industry.

This is most definitely a black mark on our island as well as our cricket.
