Cricket's 9/11, says Broad

“The third of the third month of ’09 will be with me until I die. It was an unhappy day, not only for me but for the rest of the playing control team over there and the Sri Lankan team. It will be cricket’s 9/11,” Broad said.

The 52-year-old former England cricketer says time has healed a lot of his wounds but memories refuse to fade away.

“Time is a great healer, I don’t think about it too often these days but the memories are always going to be with me. The memories are still extremely vivid and they are memories I wish I had never had,” he told a cricket website.

Broad hoped that the security lapses that led to the attack would not be repeated. “I was in India in October-November and they had certainly changed their attitudes regarding security not only for players but for officials also. The concern is that we don’t want those attitudes to relax as that is the time when the terrorists would strike,” he said.
