Bangladesh Cricket Team Misses Mass Shooting By ‘Minutes’

16 Mars 2019

It is to be noted that the Bangladesh Cricket team is now in New Zealand for an ODI and a Test series against the hosts. "We came and ran to the ground". He said the incident has left the players shaken and clearly traumatized. In the end, the players survived the attack and returned to their hotel safely, however, many players witnessed the incident from their bus and could hear shooting from inside the mosque, leaving many players traumatized. "We have advised the players not to step out".

After arriving at the site, the team were reportedly told to stay on the bus outside the mosque on Deans Avenue before travelling back to Hagley Oval on foot.

"The multiple fatalities are, as far as we know, at two locations", he said.

"We'll certainly be having to look at our security in depth. I couldn't put it into words how I'm feeling right now", said Williams, wiping away tears as he spoke. "We will set a plan from now on to ensure proper security when our team will be on tour in future". However, the team canceled the match and the tour immediately.

"I have spoken to my counterpart in Bangladesh and we both agree that it's inappropriate to play cricket at this time", NZ Cricket chief executive David White told TVNZ.

"It's quite unbelievable really".

"The distraught Bangladesh players got inside a bus and laid down on the floor after the warning", he reported. He also confirmed that the entire team and support staff are healthy and at the hotel and that their plans to return home are being worked out.

According to him, there were 17-18 of them, including Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar, in the team bus, of which 15 would have gone inside the mosque.

"Frightening experience and please keep us in your prayers". The most recent was a bombing in Karachi in 2002, which saw the second of two tests against Pakistan cancelled before a ball could be bowled.

"W$3 e r extremely lucky", Mushfiqur said. He added, "Never want to see this things happen again. The surprise was it happened in New Zealand, of all places, supposedly the safest".

Coach Steve Rhodes said the squad were still in shock from the incident. "We are working to have any footage removed", the New Zealand police tweeted. I would describe it as an unprecedented act of violence, an act that has absolutely no place in New Zealand. After waiting inside the team bus and making frantic phone calls, including to ESPNcricinfo correspondent Mohammad Isam, they then hurried back across the park after making their own decision to leave the bus before being put into lockdown at the ground. Six of the visiting team were wounded and eight locals killed. "It is not only, say, Bangladesh or India or Pakistan at the high risk", he said.
