Hyderabad Cricket Association secretary Dr MV Sridhar said: “We could not do it (observe two-minute silence) today (Day One). But players will certainly pay respect on Sunday before the commencement of the second day’s play.”
“We have ensured the presence of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Cricket Australia (CA) officials,” he added. The twin blasts rocked Hyderabad on the eve of the first Test in Chennai — February 21.
The bombs exploded in Dilsukhnagar, a crowded shopping area.
Nearly 20 people were killed while more than 100 were injured in the terror attack. The HCA secretary informed that the players might not wear black armbands. “It is not certain whether the players will wear black armbands,” he said.
