The world was left stunned on Sunday morning. Sri Lanka was rocked with as many as eight serial blasts in which three churches were attacked. Easter prayers were going on in the churches at that point in time and close to 160 people have lost their lives with the death toll expected to increase. Close to 400 people are reportedly injured as it has been learnt that the suicide bombers were responsible for these attacks.
Even as the cricketing fraternity expressed its shock and condemned the cowardly attack, AB de Villiers is finding it tough to explain his situation at the moment. He was distraught after reading about the unfortunate incident in Sri Lanka and took to Twitter to express himself.
“Very sad to see this!!! Thoughts and prayers with everyone affected in any way. Tough to find words, cause our world seems to be in turmoil, so much hate around. Reading my Bible on this Easter morning, the only way to keep fighting this is with love, hope and salvation. #love,” his tweet read.

De Villiers set to be back on the field
AB de Villiers, meanwhile, looks set to come back on the field in the game against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK). The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will need him at the number three and they will be hoping that he gets going from the word go. De Villiers missed the previous encounter due to a mild concussion but Virat Kohli’s brilliant knock didn’t let the team miss him.
As far as more updates regarding the Sri Lanka blasts are concerned, the death toll has increased to 207 now and 450 people are injured. The Sri Lanka Government has declared curfew from 6 PM to 6 AM now as seven people are already arrested by the police in the case.
