Nagpur: The Australia and New Zealand players wore black arm-bands on Friday during their World Cup match in the memory of those, who lost their lives in
devastating earthquake that rocked Christchurch last Tuesday.

As informed by Australia skipper Ricky Ponting yesterday, the players also observed a minute`s silence in the memory of those who lost their lives.
