Sri Lanka bomb blasts: Vaas, Herath call for unity

It’s been a couple of days since Easter Sunday’s series of bomb blasts killed at least 321 people in Colombo. As the people of country mourn, Sri Lanka’s cricket legends, Chaminda Vaas and Rangana Herathcalled for unity.

“We can rebuild churches or hotels but we can’t bring lives back. I am sure the Sri Lankan government and the people will be very united this time and make sure that they stick together,” Vaas, who has played 111 Tests and 322 ODIs said.

Herath also echoed similar views. “We need to convey our deepest sympathies and condolences. As Chaminda said, we are a united country. We kind of have a panicky situation but (we are sure that) we (will) become a strong country,” said Herath.
