Bangladesh's players narrowly escaped the terror attack in Christchurch, in which 49 people were killed. The team bus was near one of the mosques when shootings took place.

The players were first under lockdown in the dressing room at Hagley Oval, before making it safely to their hotel.

News emerged that the third Test, scheduled to begin on Saturday, would be cancelled.

The cricketing fraternity around the world rallied out in support of those affected by the events in Christchurch.
