Saad responded to Syed saying, "doing fine thank you. Can't find a way to call you but things have settled down a bit. Game is still on at the moment."
Saad continued the conversation through direct message, saying, "Things are okay. Heard 2 explosions and didn't think much of it and then my family was asking if I was okay. Saw ambulance right outside my hotel and didn't know what was going on. Saw some smoke about less than a mile away. My grandma lives right next to the embassy, so I was scared at first. Everyone is okay but there are still people have tragically lost there (sic) lives."
Syed then asked him about security for the match, and Saad responded, "I'm sure security will be tight. Especially since we are playing Iran and the bombs were right around the Iranian embassy."
The match is scheduled at 9:30 a.m. central time.
Saad is expected to head back to Kansas City on Wednesday.
