Team Bangladesh got a “Narrow Escape” on the Christchurch mosque attack
As team Bangladesh was supposed to be in the mosque unless they got late due to the press conference before the prayer. Sometimes delays save lives or Bangladesh cricket could lose their bests in the massive Christchurch attack.
Accordingly, team members didn’t step out of the bus and returned back to the hotel, where Coach Steve Rhodes and Liton Das was in the ground and worried about the rests. Then BCB called a meeting with NZC and decided to conclude the tour at once. Then NZC informed through their website as the arrangements of sending back the Bangladeshi players will complete as soon as possible.

This is significant and I can tell you now this is and will be one of New Zealand’s darkest days. I would describe it as an unprecedented act of violence, an act that has absolutely no place in New Zealand. This is not who we are.”

The person who has perpetuated this violent act against them, they have no place in New Zealand society”
