The New Zealand Cricket Board chose to pull out of the tour shortly before the start of the ODI series opener at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium on Friday, citing a government notice. Despite assurances from Pakistan’s Prime Minister and former cricket captain Imran Khan, they refused to participate.
New Zealand’s team has already left Pakistan and arrived in Dubai, where they will prepare for the T20 World Cup 2021. For their decision, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) has received a lot of backlash from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and other Pakistan cricketers.
“There’s a lot of pressure created on Pakistan cricket and (especially) Pakistan cricket at home,” PCB chairman Ramiz Raja told cricket fans in a video message released on Saturday.The fight to survive is the base on which we challenge the whole world. If such a situation is developed (again) when international cricket comes under pressure in Pakistan, we will challenge them once again.” PCB chairman Ramiz Raja spoke in a video message.
