Final New Zealand-Bangladesh Test Called Off After Mosque Shootings In Christchurch

CRICKET

New Zealand and Bangladesh today cancelled the third Test after multiple people were killed in gun attacks on mosques in Christchurch, including one that was attended by the Bangladeshi team.

The final Test was scheduled to start on Saturday.

“A joint decision between NZC and the @BCBtigers has been made to cancel the Hagley Oval Test,” the New Zealand team tweeted, adding that all players and officials were safe.

 

Bangladeshi players and team staff arrived at the city’s Masjid al Noor for Friday prayers as a shooting unfolded and were warned not to go inside.
