New Zeeland Cricket Team Abandoned Series With Pakistan

New Zealand Cricket Team Feels Unsafe

To our SHOCK! The New Zealand cricket team had canceled their tour of Pakistan on Friday, just minutes before the opening match at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium was supposed to begin. Their main reason – security concerns.

The NZC chief executive David White stated that given the advice he was getting, it was just not viable to continue with the trip.

Although, New Zealand Cricket Players Association chief executive Heath Mills said that they’ve been through this process and they’ve felt quite fully supported. He even mentioned that the players were in good hands, were safe, and everyone acted in their best interest.

The Kiwis, on one side, are abandoning the series while, on the other hand, saying that the players are in good hands. This sounds a wee bit strange no? Well, it definitely did to Pakistani celebrities!

Ramiz Raja, the newly elected PCB chairman, shared his frustration and is apologetic to the fans. He was disappointed with the immature act of the NCB.

Wasim Akram shared his disappointment with the decision of The New Zealand Cricket board. The former Captain tweeted that Pakistan ensured the best security level and considered Pakistan one of the safest countries in the world.

The Rawalpindi Express, Shoaib Akhtar reminded the favors PCB has on NCB. Shoaib tweeted about the support the Pakistan cricket team had for the kiwis in recent past years.

Asim Azhar shared his views and was quite annoyed at the event. He said that Pakistan would bounce back and said that the cricket world should beware of the Pakistani team.

Darren Sammy, former west Indies Captain and Peshawar Zalmi head coach, showed sadness over Pakistan vs. New Zealand series cancellation. He has been visiting Pakistan for a consecutive six years for the PSL and considers Pakistan one of the safest countries globally.

Here’s how Isloo fans are reacting….
