PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani in the statement said: “On behalf of the Pakistan cricket fraternity, I would like to condemn in the strongest possible way the cowardly, uncivilised and inhuman terrorist attacks on the innocent worshippers in Christchurch mosques. Our hearts go out to all those affected by this tragedy as who will feel and understand their pain and loss better than us.

In these difficult times, we also stand firmly with our colleagues in New Zealand Cricket and offer our deepest condolences.” The PCB chairman also expressed relief that the Bangladesh cricket team escaped the incident unharmed. “We are also aware that the Bangladesh men’s cricket team were also praying at a mosque near the Hagley Park. We thank God Almighty that all of them escaped unhurt,” he said.
