Bangladesh totally concerned about the safety of the foreign players after the terrorist attack that took place on July 1 in Dhaka which laid almost 20 people dead. This made the World Cricket teams to fear the land of Bangladesh as the terrorists killed and summoned only foreigners in the country.
