OZ umpires angry at security lapses

Sydney: Australian umpires, Simon Taufel and Steve Davis who surivived Tuesday's attack have criticised that they were left alone when the terrorists attacked them as the guards abandoned them.

The driver of the van containing match officials was killed and the driver of the team bus drove along even as bullets peppered his vehicle.

"I'm angry that we were isolated. I'm angry that we didn't get the same level of security that the players got. I'm angry that in our hour of need we were left on our own. I'm angry that the team got to the ground and no one came back for us," Taufel said after returning to Sydney on Thursday, Mar 5 two days after the attack.

Security were nowhere to be seen when we were left at the roundabout said Davis, who arrived in Melbourne on Thursday, Mar 5.He also said that he was disappointed and at the same time angry.
