A joint decision has been taken by NZC and the BCB to cancel the third Test match due to start tomorrow at Hagley Oval.
Both groups of players and support staff are safe and secure.
NZC would like to extend its heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of those affected by the shocking situation in Christchurch.
Arrangements are being made for the return of the Bangladesh team home as soon as possible.
A decision has also been made to cancel the two remaining fixtures between the New Zealand Development team and Australia’s U19 women’s team that were due to take place over the weekend at Lincoln’s Bert Sutcliffe Oval.
“We are shocked and appalled as I am sure all New Zealanders are,” said NZC CEO David White.
“We are offering support to all those within the teams affected by the situation and are continuing to take advice from authorities on the ground.”
