ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The New Zealand Cricket Board unilaterally cancelled the series with Pakistan due to security threats.

According to a press release issued by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), New Zealand Cricket informed the board early on Friday that they had been alerted to some security alert and have unilaterally decided to postpone the series.

"The PCB and the Pakistan government had made foolproof security arrangements for all visiting teams. We have assured the New Zealand Cricket of the same. Prime Minister Imran Khan spoke personally to the Prime Minister of New Zealand and informed her that we have one of the best intelligence systems in the world and that no security threat of any kind exists for the visiting team," it added.

The statement said that the security officials with the New Zealand team have been satisfied with security arrangements made by the Pakistan government throughout their stay here.

"The PCB is willing to continue the scheduled matches. However, cricket lovers in Pakistan and around the world will be disappointed by this last minute withdrawal," it added.
