New Delhi:Cricket South Africa on Thursday expressed its concern over Wednesday night's terrorist attacks in Mumbai that have resulted in numerous deaths and injuries.
Two of the South African franchises, the Nashua Titans and the Nashua Dolphins, are due to leave for India at the weekend to play in the inaugural Champions' League competition. National captain Graeme Smith and fast bowler Makhaya Ntini are also contracted to play for the Rajasthan Royals and the Chennai Super Kings respectively. Some of the matches are scheduled for Mumbai.
"The safety of our players is of paramount concern to us at all times," commented CSA CEO Gerald Majola. "We will have to wait for guidance from the Department of Foreign Affairs as well as the people on the ground in India before we take any decisions.
"At the same time I would like to express sympathy to those who have been injured or lost loved ones in this tragic incident."
