Sri Lanka has appointed a retired army general Major General Lawrence Fernando to act as security consultant for the team and protect the team during domestic and overseas tours. There's only one reason for this.
Sri Lanka Cricket said the appointment was due to:
"The global security threats and after the sequence of unfortunate incidents that the Sri Lankan team had to face (in Pakistan). His main concerns will be all aspects pertaining to security such as inbound, outbound tours, venues under Sri Lanka Cricket."
So, an ex-army official of the highest rank working to protect a cricket team. The attack in Lahore was the first major shake-up of this kind to world cricket, and it has undoubtedly changed certain international relations permanently. If we're having to bring in military servicemen to aid with the protection of cricketers, it seems likely that in the coming years we will see security bumped up further and further as perceived threats increase.
Perhaps life as a cricketer won't seem quite so appealing anymore in the near future.
