New Zealand Cricket Chief hints at resuming T20 series against Pakistan
ISLAMABAD – New Zealand Cricket Chief David White hinted at resuming the T20 series in the future after Kiwis abandoned their historic Pakistan tour citing security threats.
A statement issued by White stated that New Zealand will think about playing the cancelled matches against Men in Green in the future.
The statement cited “At the moment, to speak about the New Zealand touring Pakistan again will be premature”. It also added that “whether it is Pakistan or England, where the team visits, reviewing the security arrangements is the most important step”.
He also mentioned that NZC can still enjoy cordial relations with Pakistan Cricket while admiring that Pakistan was a cricket-loving nation and he knew Pakistanis were disappointed with the series getting cancelled. “NZC can understand how hurt Pakistani fans are”, he added.
*'Pakistan won’t play home series abroad'*
Earlier, Pakistan Cricket Board CEO Wasim Khan mentioned that Pakistan will not play home series abroad. Speaking with reporters, he said New Zealand abandon Pakistan’s tour on a unilateral basis while adding that the decision has damaged our cricket heavily.
“PCB has a clear vision for now that Pakistan will play home series in Pakistan only and will not play anywhere else for which we’re in talks with different boards. We’ve worked day and night to bring back international cricket in stadiums of Pakistan,” he said.
