Bangladesh cricketers were “minutes” from being inside a mosque in which a fatal mass shooting in New Zealand took place, says team manager Khaled Mashud.
Players and coaching staff were “50 yards” from the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch, when the shooting began.
“If we were there five minutes earlier, it would have been worse,” he added.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said 49 people were killed in “terrorist attacks” at two mosques, while more than 20 people are seriously injured.
Mashud says the team “all are safe and sound” in the hotel but will travel home “in the coming days”.
