New Zealand, Bangladesh Test match called off after Christchurch mosque shootings

CHRISTCHURCH: New Zealand and Bangladesh on Friday 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.

Multiple fatalities were inflicted at two mosques in Christchurch, when at least one gunman opened fire on worshippers, with the Bangladeshi cricket team narrowly escaping danger.

The New Zealand Cricket Board confirmed the news of the Test match being called off on Twitter, “Our heartfelt condolences go out to the families and friends of those affected by the shocking situation in Christchurch. A joint decision between NZC and the BCB has been made to cancel the Hagley Oval Test. Again both teams and support staff groups are safe.”
