Bangladesh cricketers escape New Zealand mosque shooting

'Shots fired' near mosque in New Zealand

But Chowdhury understood New Zealand matter and said it depends on the security assessment of the country that how they would ensure security.

Bangladesh opening batsman Tamim Iqbal said he believes it will not be easy for the national cricket team to overcome the shock of narrowly escaping Friday's shooting in a New Zealand mosque.

A user while comparing the Pakistan attack with New Zealand attack wrote "Yes but you should know that there were no casualties during the attack on Sri Lanka Cricket team 10 years back but doors of cricket were shut down till now".

Mashud said about 17 Bangladeshi players and team staff on the bus watched as blood-soaked victims staggered from the building.

Earlier, armed police in New Zealand swarmed central Christchurch Friday amid a shooting at a mosque in the South Island city.

They later said there were "multiple fatalities" after shootings at at least two mosques. He also added that they have discussed with Bangladesh and decided that it is not the right time to play cricket. "Militancy and terrorism can never bring any good to anyone", she said. "I don't think anyone.in this country, would say that rugby was the most important thing".

The Bangladesh team will take off from Christchurch at midday on Saturday and arrive in Dhaka in the evening.

"This is the first time that, not only in New Zealand but anywhere else, that I have experienced this".

Mazhar Uddin, a reporter for Bangladesh's Daily Star who is travelling with the team, said players lay down on the floor of a bus after being warned away from the mosque. Two other men and one woman were also detained and firearms were seized, although it is now not clear if they were linked to the attacks.

As with the Sri Lanka players in Lahore exactly a decade ago, the Mahmudullahs ducked till possibly a lull in the shooting brought the realisation that they could end up as sitting ducks in the team bus.

"They are at the ground, they are shaken but good". The mayor of Christchurch, Lianne Dalziel stated that it is a bolt from the blue for the people and it could not be expected for a country like New Zealand.

Holding a press conference, New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described the moment as "one of New Zealand's darkest days". "Had we reached even three or four minutes earlier, we probably would have been inside the mosque".
