Before three one day internationals in Rawalpindi began their journey to Pakistan, New Zealand left Pakistan because to security concerns.
In addition to loss of security the PCB official, the government and security agencies are blowing the attempt of bringing international cricket to pakistan. The PCB official, speaking under condition of anonymity, told the local newspaper.
Five T20 Internationals had to be played in Lahore after three ODIs between Pakistan and New Zealand.
The official stated the issue of New Zealand cricket would be of no value to the International Cricket Council.
“In these situations, the ICC never did anything. The indian lobby at the ICC is also powerful, making it difficult for the PCB to win compensation proceedings against NZ,” claimed the officer. ‘
We can remember that New Zealand had first visited Pakistan since 2003 and the England Cricket Board, after cancelling its travel, also declared that it will make its final decision in the coming days for its October tour of Pakistan.
British men’s and women’s sides were due for a short two-match T20 series in Pakistan next month.
In 2005, the men’s England team had previously played in Pakistan an international game, and for the first time women’s team has toured.
“Now there’s little hope that England will be visited,” added the official.
Former Captain Michael Vaughan from England has expressed hope for a resolution of security problems in Pakistan.
“That humiliation for Pakistan Cricket,” he wrote on Twitter. This delay would cause enormous financial damage to the game. Security problems can hopefully be overcome to enable cricket play in Pakistan again ..!!
Twitterati Pakistanis were not at all delighted and fumed the choice to give up their tour and fly back over the black caps.
After New Zealand came down from tour of Pakistan on security threats, other national and international cricketers also stepped up and supported Pakistan.
Many international cricket players who visited Pakistan previously to play their series against Pakistan or to play Pakistan Super League (PSL) shared experience with Pakistan’s security and backed Pakistan.
