DHAKA: Bangladesh opening batsman Tamim Iqbal said he believes it will not be easy for the national cricket team to overcome the shock of narrowly escaping Friday’s shooting in a New Zealand mosque.
At least 49 people died in attacks on two mosques in the city of Christchurch.
“It will certainly take some time for us to get out of it [the state of shock] after the experience we had here,” Tamim told reporters at Christchurch airport moments before the team left for Bangladesh on Saturday.
“It is better that we are returning ... because everyone’s family is worried,” he said.
