CRICKET- Bangladesh team coach Steve Rhodes has praised his team for the way it handled the Christchurch mosque attack.

Bangladesh team was in Christchurch when the attack took place in March in New Zealand. 51 people lost their lives in the attacks that day.

At Bangladesh’s pre-match press conference on Tuesday, Rhodes said, “I have got so much respect for the players, the way that they have handled themselves after that event, the way that they have got themselves through it all.”

Bangladesh won their first match of the World Cup against South Africa and are next up against New Zealand.
