  • The third test match was the tour finale for the visitors

Bangladesh cricket team performance analyst Shrinivas Chandrasekeran, on the other hand, said: "Just escaped active shooters. I don't think anyone.in this country, would say that rugby was the most important thing".

Speaking after the attack the Bangladeshi cricket coach Mario Villavarayen said the players heard shots being fired when they fled the mosque.

"Frightening experience and please keep us in your prayers". "Thanks to the BCB (Bangladesh Cricket Board) for bringing us back to the country very quickly". "It's not just here, wherever we go, we don't get that much security", Nazmul Hassan told reporters in Dhaka.

"A serious and evolving situation is occurring in Christchurch with an active shooter", police said in a statement. Had we reached even three or four minutes earlier, we probably would have been inside the mosque.

New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White said there had been a "joint decision" to call off the third test, which had been scheduled to start on Saturday in Christchurch.

Australia cricket team cancelled a tour in Bangladesh in 2015 citing lack of security while Australia Under-19 cricket team skipped ICC Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh in 2016 on the same ground.

Leading New Zealand players voiced their shock at what took place with captain Kane Williamson posting in Instagram: "Like the rest of New Zealand, I am struggling to understand what has happened today".

Coaches from Yale, Stanford, Wake Forest and Georgetown universities and USC , among others, are implicated in the case. Loughlin and her husband were taken into federal custody and later released on separate $1 million bonds on Wednesday.

The Test team were touring New Zealand and, after completing media duties, made their way towards the site.

Bangladesh Cricket Board spokesman Jalal Yunus said most of the team were bussed to the mosque and were about to go inside when the incident happened.

Prime minister Sheikh Hasina said on Saturday said that Bangladesh in future will send its cricket team overseas only after examining and reviewing the security measures of the host countries.

The team's opening batsman Tamim Iqbal said he believes it will not be easy for the national cricket team to overcome the shock of the attack.

The Bangladesh cricket team Saturday left New Zealand, hours after escaping death by a whisker in the deadliest terror attack in the country's history. "There is no place in New Zealand for such acts of extreme and unprecedented violence, which it is clear this act was", Arden said.

They also abandoned a tour of Pakistan in May 2002 following a suicide bombing outside their hotel in Karachi.

'Our thoughts and honest condolences go out to the families and friends of those affected by this horrendous incident in Christchurch, ' Richardson said.
