The Lahore terror attack might have left an indelible scar on their mind but Sri Lanka skipper Kumar Sangakkara says they have left the incident behind and are looking forward to the challenges in World Twenty20 Championship commencing on June 5.

"Returning to cricket is the sign of normalcy for us, getting back to our normal lives. We remember the Lahore attack. There is a lot of emotion tied up with it, but we've got to move on. Life moves on, cricket goes on. The guys have realised that and they are prepared mentally now," Sangakkara said.

The World Championship is going to be the first major tournament for the Sri Lanka team after they survived the March 3 Lahore Terror attack, which left six Lankan cricketers injured.

"The guys have moved on very well from Lahore. It is great to be back playing cricket and hope we can make a challenge in the World Twenty20. The side is really looking forward to doing well," Sangakkara told cricket website Cricinfo.Com.
