Glad that Bangladesh players were safe and returned home safely: Boult
New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult said that the Christchurch terror attack was an emotional week for all the people in New Zealand.
Boult, who is currently playing for Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League (IPL) talked about the tragic event in New Zealand while he was on the sidelines of a promotional event to announce his IPL team Delhi Capitals’ association with American loudspeaker manufacturing company JBL.
The fast bowler revealed that his countrymen are still coming to terms with the terror attack on two Christchurch mosques that killed 50 people.
“It was an emotional week for all of us in New Zealand. It was tragic and people are still coming to terms with the terror attack. It will take some time.”
Bangladesh players escaped from the horror attack and returned home safely the next day. Boult informed that he couldn’t contact with any of the players, but was glad that everyone reached home safely.
“Unfortunately, they left for home next day itself and I didn’t get an opportunity to speak to them. But I am glad that they were safe and returned home safely.”
Meanwhile, Boult also talked about the mankad dismissal that took place during the match between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab.
“It’s there in the rules and that’s what matters. It’s interesting though. Right now, my focus is to do well for Delhi in the IPL. I am not thinking too much about workload and focussing on the present. The team (Capitals) is in good shape and happy space,” he concluded.
