WELLINGTON :
New Zealand and Bangladesh are in discussions to play a Twenty20 charity cricket match to raise funds for survivors of Cyclone Sidr, which devastated the South Asian country last week.

Although Bangladesh officials said Saturday the match would be played in New Zealand on December 23, just before the start of a one-day series between the teams, a New Zealand spokesman said discussions were ongoing.

A warm-up one-day match between Bangladesh and Northern Districts had been scheduled for that date.

More than 3,400 people died in the November 15 cyclone and hundreds of thousands of people have been left homeless and facing a severe water, food and medicine shortage.
