The incident that took on the other day at Christchurch would certainly go down as one of the black spots on New Zealand. The Bangladesh Cricket Team, who is being hosted by New Zealand team escaped the danger narrowly, which would open a lot of doubts on travelling to New Zealand for a bilateral series.

Meanwhile, the New Zealand Cricket set to add more strength to their security forces by bringing in new personnel. The official quoted that the recent event is a wake-up call and they would like to further increase the security force for the visiting teams.
