New Zealand cancel Under-19 tour
The Bangladesh Cricket Board said on Sunday that New Zealand Under19 squad postponed their upcoming tour of Bangladesh as they are yet to recover from the terror shock.
The visitors were scheduled to arrive in Bangladesh on April 10 to play a five-match youth ODI series and BCB believed that the series will be played as per schedule earlier.
Recently NZC requested BCB that they are unable to play the series as per schedule as they are yet to recover from the trauma of the terror attack.
“The home series against New Zealand is postponed for the time being as they informed us that they are not coming as per schedule,’’ BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury told reporters on Sunday.
“It looks they are yet to recover from the shock due to the terror attack,’’ he said.
“It is understood that the parents might have some reservations as the series was expected played between young cricketers,’’ he added.
Bangladesh’s cricketers were fortunate that they narrowly escaped the shooting incident in Christchurch, reaching the location only a few minutes after a gunman opened fire inside the premises of the mosque.
Sheikh Kamal International Cricket Stadium (SKICS) in Cox’s Bazar along with Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram were expected to host all the matches of the series that was scheduled from April 16.
