PUNE (India) Ahsan Raza, the victim of the terrorist attack on Sri Lanka cricket team in Lahore on March 3 last year, is set to officiate as an international umpire for the Asia Cup, said his brother Dr Ali Raza on Monday. Speaking to this scribe, he said: After the Lahore Test attack last year, my brother did officiate in a few international matches (Dubai and Abu Dhabi) which involved Pakistan as one of the participating teams but the Asia Cup is the first mega-event where, besides Pakistan, three more teams (India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh) are participating. It is like his dream, which at one stage looked shattered, coming true now. He underwent some horrible moments and surgeries in the few months after the attack in Lahore, he said. The Sri Lankan cricket team attack occurred on March 3, 2009, when a bus carrying Sri Lankan cricketers, part of a larger convoy, was fired upon by 12 gunmen near the Gaddafi Stadium. The cricketers were on their way to play the third day of the second Test against Pakistan. Six Sri Lankan players were injured. A minivan following the team bus and carrying the match referee and umpires was also fired upon and the driver was killed. Simon Taufel, Steve Davis, Nadeem Ghauri, Ahsan Raza, umpires performance manager Peter Manuel, liaison officer Abdul Sami and ICC match referee Chris Broad were in this minivan. The van was allegedly subsequently abandoned by security personnel and no bullets were fired by the security forces for 20 minutes. Chris Broad threw himself over and kept his hand on the chest of Ahsan Raza to slow down the profuse bleeding from a bullet injury. A police officer who climbed into the van to seek cover, initially refused to drive the van. After Chris Broad scolded him, he agreed and drove the van to safety. It is the ultimate wish of my brother to umpire in the next years World Cup, scheduled to be played in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, he added. My brother has also ambitions to officiate at Lords - may be this season he may get a chance when our country (Pakistan) is to play against Australia at neutral venue, he added. Pakistan will also play a Twenty20 match against MCC XI at Lords on June 27. Saurav Ganguly and Lara have confirmed their participation in this MCCs first sponsored match.
