Arrangements are currently underway to return the Bangladesh team to their country as soon as possible said the New Zealand Cricket board.

Further the board has decided to also cancel the under 19 women’s cricket tournament between Australia and New Zealand that was to be held this weekend. CEO of NZC David White said that they were all in shock. And they will be offering continuous support and cooperating with authorities.
