South Africa's pullout from Sri Lanka, 2006

South Africa were in Sri Lanka for a Test series in mid-2006, and India were supposed to join the two teams for a tri-series of one-day internationals, but a bomb blast in Colombo killed seven and injured 17 just after the Test series, following which, after two days of deliberation, South Africa eventually decided to pull the team out of Sri Lanka. India stayed on to play a three-match bilateral ODI series, which eventually couldn't get underway because of excessive rains.
