The final Test of a three-match series between New Zealand and Bangladesh was called off following a gun attack in a Christchurch mosque, UNB reports.
The game was scheduled to be played on Saturday.
"A joint decision between NZC and the @BCBtigers has been made to cancel the Hagley Oval Test," New Zealand Cricket Board wrote on Twitter at 10:01am (BdST).
Both teams and support staff groups are safe, it said.
"Our heartfelt condolences go out to the families and friends of those affected by the shocking situation in Christchurch," the cricket board tweeted.
