The third Test between New Zealand and Bangladesh, scheduled to be played at the Hagley Oval starting March 16, has been cancelled following the terror attack today.

The decision to cancel the third Test was taken jointly by New Zealand Cricket (NZC) and Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) following the deadly attack which left 40 people dead and over 20 injured.

A statement by NZC said, “Arrangements are being made for the return the Bangladesh team home as soon as possible.”

“A decision has also been made to cancel the two remaining fixtures between the New Zealand Development team and Australia’s U19 women’s team that were due to take place over the weekend at Lincoln’s Bert Sutcliffe Oval.”

New Zealand Cricket’ CEO David White said, “We are shocked and appalled as I am sure all New Zealanders are. We are offering support to all those within the teams affected by the situation and are continuing to take advice from authorities on the ground.”

Few members of the Bangladesh cricket team were near the mosque when the attack took place. They were able to escape unhurt, it was confirmed later, with all members of both teams accounted for. Christchurch was placed in lockdown following the attack. (Indian Express)
