The Bangladesh team are scheduled to arrive home Saturday at 10:40pm, Bangladesh standard time

The BCB is shocked and deeply saddened by Friday's dreadful attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. 

“Our heartfelt sympathies to the families of the victims and our thoughts are with them at this time of grave tragedy. The BCB wishes speedy recovery for those who have been injured,” said the BCB in a statement.

“The board thanks New Zealand Cricket for ensuring that members of the Bangladesh team are safe and secure in Christchurch. Both national cricket bodies acknowledge that playing in these difficult times is not a practical choice anymore and hence the decision to call off the third and final Test.”

The Bangladesh team are scheduled to arrive home Saturday at 10:40pm, Bangladesh standard time.

The BCB and NZC have worked together in making all necessary arrangements for bringing the team back to Dhaka as a matter of priority.
