The test match between the Black Caps and Bangladesh will not go ahead. The Bangladesh cricket team escaped the Christchurch Mosque where a mass shooting took place on Friday. New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White said the match has been called off. "A joint decision between NZC and [Bangladesh] has been made to cancel the Hagley Oval Test." An official ushering the team from the bus to the hotel indicated it was unlikely the third test against New Zealand would be played. "There's no thoughts toward the game. That's not the biggest concern right now, the players need space." Bangladesh bowling coach Courtney Walsh said about 3.30pm the team would have a meeting "shortly". Cricinfo's Bangladesh correspondent Mohammad Isam posted a video to Twitter of the team rushing through Hagley Park away from the mosque. A gunman reportedly opened fire at the mosque, with the former president of the Muslim Association of Canterbury Mohammed Jama saying a man with a gun went into the mosque about 1.40pm on Friday. He saw about four people injured and two people lying on the ground. He did not know if they were alive or dead. Bangladesh opening batsman Tamim Iqbal tweeted about the "frightening experience". "Entire team got saved from active shooters!!! Frightening experience and please keep us in your prayers." Bangladesh's performance and strategic analyst Shrinivas tweeted there was a lot of panic. "Just escaped active shooters!!! Heartbeats pumping badly and panic everywhere!! #ChristchurchMosque," he wrote. Bangladesh wicketkeeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim also tweeted how fortunate they were. "Alhamdulillah Allah save us today while shooting in Christchurch in the mosque...we r extremely lucky...never want to see this things happen again....pray for us." Mario Villavarayen, strength and conditioning coach of the Bangladesh cricket team said the players were shaken up, but fine. "I spoke to one of them shortly after [the incident]. They didn't see anything but heard gunshots. They were at the ground [Hagley Oval] and just started running. "The coaching staff were all at the hotel. The players just started running when they heard the shots."
