It was a delayed gesture; however the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) ensured that the India and Australia cricket teams spend a moment to remember victims of last week's blasts in Hyderabad on Sunday.

The local cricket association forgot to pay tribute to victims of the bomb blast at Dilsukhnagar at the beginning of the match on Saturday. Having realised their mistake, a two-minute silence was observed on the second day by the players of both teams.

"There was a lack of coordination because we were so stressed to ensure that all security arrangements were foolproof," admitted former Hyderabad opener and senior official Dr M V Sridhar.

A BCCI official remarked that players were "even ready on the first day, as it should have been the case. But it was the prerogative of the local association."

Eventually, it was the case of better late than never.
