Cricket in Sri Lanka

Is it just me or is anybody else having a friggin problem with cricket being played in Sri Lanka while there is a civil conflict/war and crooned genocide going on?

Or is it a case of expressing solidarity like what the England team was touted to have done when they came back after the Mumbai terror attack – catchily termed 26/11? I felt it more like diversion.
Am quite impartial to sports but this bugs me which got compounded when I saw a colleague doing some superstitious thing apparently, as a good luck gesture to help India win. Well, I guess it takes a lot of idiots doing a lot of stupid things to make the phenomenon of sports.
