The group of 10 athletes and three coaches have been in contact with the WACA and Cricket Australia and are seeking advice from the Australian Embassy on a plan moving forward.

The tour group are currently safe in their Galle hotel, about an hour and a half from the site of the bombings, and will be escorted by local police to the airport ahead of their return.

All parents and families of the young players have been informed and the WACA will remain in contact until the group is home.
