It Will Take Some Time to Get Out of Trauma – Tamim Iqbal
Bangladesh experienced batsman Tamim Iqbal has stated that it will take some time to get out of trauma. Iqbal and his teammates had the rub of the green on their side when they were going for Friday prayers to Al Noor mosque in Christchurch. Subsequently, there was a terrorist attack which went on to take the lives of 49 people.
Consequently, Tamim Iqbal believes it will take some time for all the Bangladesh players to get back to normal. In fact, things could have turned ugly had Bangladesh’s team bus reached the mosque five minutes early. They were 100 yards away from the mosque when they noticed all the shooting and the victims crying for help.
It was threatening for all the players.
“It will certainly take some time for us to get out of it following the experience that we had here,” Tamim told reporters at the airport on Saturday. “In fact, it is better that we are returning back to our family because everyone’s family is worried. I just hope after returning home we can overcome it [trauma] with the passing of time.”
Meanwhile, the third Test match which was to be played at Haque Oval from March 16 was called off due to the tensed situation. The New Zealand Cricket Board, as well as the Bangladesh Cricket Board, took a mutual decision to call off the final Test after the brutal incident.
Tamim had also taken to Twitter to inform that all the players are safe.
Entire team got saved from active shooters!!! Frightening experience and please keep us in your prayers #christchurchMosqueAttack

On the other hand, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern termed the attack as one of darkest days of the country. In fact, all of the cricket fraternity took to social media platforms to lament the terrorist’s attacks.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh manager had described the incident as a movie scene. Khaled Mashud said that people were running out of the mosque to evade the shooters when their bus had stopped a 100 yards away from the scene.
