As the security team of the New Zealand Cricket (NZC) clears for the visit, the white-ball series between Pakistan and New Zealand will begin as scheduled. The New Zealand side managed by Tom Latham is due to reach the host country next week. Since 2003, the tour has been the first for the Kiwis. The series will be held from 11 September until 3 October.
It has already been reported that following the clearing of security consultants Reg Dickason, New Zealand will continue the series because some players have expressed worry about traveling the nation. The pre-tour inspection has now been completed and a green signal has been obtained as expected.
After 18 years of bilateral ODI and T20 series play in Rawalpindi and Lahore, the New Zealand cricket team reached Pakistan on Saturday. The visitors were taken to their hotel by tight security from Islamabad’s International Airport.
For players from New Zealand and officials at their accommodation, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has arranged a bio-secure bubble. Read more – Pakistan Tour to New Zealand abandoned for reasons of security
