London: Former Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene said the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in 2009 still haunts him.
In March 2009, the Sri Lankan team was attacked by masked gunmen on their way to the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. Five cricketers, including Jayawardene and his deputy Kumar Sangakkara, received minor injuries. Ajantha Mendis, Thilan Samaraweera and Tharanga Paravitarana were also injured in the attack which killed six security men and two civilians.
Recalling the incident, that made Pakistan a no-go zone for international teams, Jayawardene said it still gives him nightmares.
