Bangladesh national cricket team has been in New Zealand for 3 ODIs and as many Tests. The last test match of the series was scheduled on Saturday at the Hagley Oval, Christchurch. However, the mass shootings led to the cancellation of today’s test match.

The players and team management of both the teams are safe, however, the Bangladeshi team is reported to be in lockdown in their hotel.

Bangladeshi players were going for their Jumma prayers when they heard gun shots, escaping to the Hagley Oval ground nearby.

The players are horrified after the incident.
