    Default Two Sri Lanka players still in hospital after Laho

    COLOMBO: Two Sri Lankan cricket players remain hospitalised in Colombo, two weeks after the squad was attacked by militant gunmen in Pakistan, the team's doctor said Monday.

    Thilan Samaraweera, who had a bullet removed from his left thigh, and Ajantha Mendis, who had shrapnel extracted from his head and back, are being treated at a private hospital, Geethanjana Mendis said.

    Mendis, who heads the Sri Lankan sports ministry medical unit, said Tharanga Paranavitana, who had a bullet taken out of his chest, and the British assistant coach Paul Farbrace were discharged over the weekend.

    "Samaraweera and Mendis need a little bit more attention and we are hopeful we can discharge them within a few days," the doctor told.

    The convoy of players, officials and coaches on their way to the second Test match in Lahore on March 3 was ambushed by gunmen firing automatic weapons, grenades and a rocket launcher.

    Seven Sri Lankan players and Farbrace were injured, and the squad was flown home immediately. Eight Pakistanis were killed by the unknown attackers, who escaped capture.

    Mendis said psychologists hired to counsel the team were due to wrap up their programme this week.
