FICA Comment on Christchurch Attacks
FICA, on behalf of its members and cricketers around the world, sends its prayers and sympathies to the people of Christchurch following today’s horrendous attacks.

The global cricket community was shocked to hear that the Bangladesh cricket team was so close to the incident.

FICA has been in contact with the New Zealand Cricket Players’ Association and Cricketers’ Welfare Association of Bangladesh and full support has been offered to the Bangladesh players and the touring squad on the ground.
