Default New Zealand turns down offer to tour Pakistan

ESPNcricinfo staff
New Zealand Cricket has turned down a request from the PCB to tour Pakistan later this year for a T20I series because of security concerns. New Zealand are set to travel to the UAE to play Pakistan for a full tour that is likely to comprise three Tests, three ODIs and as many T20Is in October-November, even though the fixtures are not announced yet. The PCB had hoped to convince New Zealand to play the T20I leg of the tour in Pakistan.

"At the end of the day it came down to following the advisory and the security reports we'd obtained." NZC chairman Greg Barclay told Newshub. "There's no doubt they (Pakistan Cricket Board) are disappointed. I think they saw a tour by a country like New Zealand as being a great precedent for them to start to build an international programme back in Pakistan.

"So they're disappointed but they're good guys, we get on really well with Pakistan, and I think they're fully accepting of the decision that we've reached."

NZC had received a request to tour Pakistan earlier this year and was going to consult with security providers, the government, and the players.

Since the terror attack on the Sri Lanka team bus in 2009, Pakistan have played most of their home games in the UAE. Zimbabwe broke the deadlock in May 2015 when they toured for a short limited-overs series, which was marred by a blast near the Gaddafi Stadium.

So are they going to call off all future tours to New Zealand in return and suspend NOC to play in NZ T20 leagues?

Or does that apply to Bangladesh only?

That's only for Bangladesh mate. When it's countries other than Bangladesh, they "fully accept the decision" but when it's us, they expect compensation for not touring.

Any team that decides to tour Pakistan will have a disadvantage because of the lack of time to prepare. Teams are sending their second and third string sides; making it look like exhibition matches and false hope for the Pakistani fans.

Yes. Also there are other good teams (for different reasons) also don't wants a series with us.

The way I see it, when we will start playing great, teams will line up knocking our doors for a series.

Shame on New Zealand to let something so trivial like couple of bombs a day stop them from touring.

I think Pakistan and India might start playing bilateral series again but not in Pakistan.

He has a good image in India. There is a funny clip where an Indian show where someone mistakenly called him Honourable Indian instead of Honorary Indian and everyone in the Indian audience had a good chuckle.
