Pakistan vs New Zealand: With security check complete, Blackcaps all set for tour after 18 years

New Zealand officially confirms its tour for Pakistan after 18 years. The approval came from the New Zealand Cricket (NZC) after the pre-tour security check by their independent security consultant, Reg Dickason.

According to media reports, NZC has expressed satisfaction over the security report and skipper Tom Latham in a virtual interview says that he believes in Dickason’s report.

“Someone like Reg, he’s been around a long time, and he’s worked with New Zealand Cricket for a long time. We here have full trust in what he does for New Zealand Cricket and the processes and regulations that they put in place,” Latham was quoted as saying by the Stuff.

“Our focus at this stage is on Bangladesh, but our focus will turn to Pakistan once this series is done,” the publication reported him as saying.

The NZ team is set to arrive in Pakistan via a chartered flight on September 11, after completing its series with Bangladesh.

The visitors will face the hosts in three ODIS that will be played in Rawalpindi, and five T20Is that will be played in Lahore. The series will wrap up on October 3.

The last full-length tour of Blackcaps was cut short due to the bomb explosion near the hotel where they were staying. They returned to play the ODI series the following year. The Blackcaps have not been back since.
