Pak v NZ: Numerous international cricketers came forward and supported Pakistan after New Zealand called off their tour of Pakistan on a security threat.

Many international cricketers who have earlier toured Pakistan to play their series against Pakistan or toured Pakistan to play Pakistan Super League (PSL) have shared their experience regarding the security of Pakistan and supported Pakistan.

 

 

Many international cricketers including former international cricketers have supported Pakistan and tweeted in favour of Pakistan.

Darren Sammy tweeted, “Disappointed waking up to the news of the cancellation of the Pakistan Vs New Zealand series because of security issues.Over the last 6 years playing and visiting Pakistan has been one of the most enjoyable experiences. I’ve always felt safe. this is a massive blow to Pakistan”

The @TheRealPCB and the government have worked so hard to get cricket back to Pakistan. Again I will say Pakistan is one of the safest places I’ve played cricket. The fans are amazing. I feel at home when I’m there. So disappointed right now.

Sherfane Rutherford tweeted, “Feelings for my pakistani friends not a good news for cricket lovers.”

I’ve travelled to many countries. Pakistani is the safest country for cricket and cricket loving country. #PAKvNZ

Angelo Perera tweeted, “Toured @TheRealPCB 2 years back and really enjoyed every minute of our stay!! Felt extremely welcomed and also safe tbh! Never had any doubt Genuinely wanna see cricket return to this great nation! @danushka_70 @dasunshanaka1
Roshan Abeysinghe tweeted, “Very sad to read about the cancellation of the NZ tour of Pakistan. Was part of the Sri Lanka tour last time and I must admit that besides the country being full of great people, the security was top class and attention paid to detail @TheRealPCB. Hope sanity prevails.
Grant Elliott tweeted, “Sad news for players and fans. #NZvPAK

Rilee Rossouw tweeted, “Very sad to see the cancellation of the New Zealand tour to Pakistan.”

Alan Wilkins tweeted, “Hugely disappointing that the @BLACKCAPS tour to Pakistan is abandoned. @TheRealPCB has worked so hard in such challenging times to bring cricket back to the homeland, this is a crushing blow to Pakistan’s cricket fans, and will surely impact future incoming tours #PAKvNZ

Dimuth Karunarathna tweeted, “Sad to note NZ tour of PK has been called off… 2 years ago @TheRealPCB security made sure we were ultra safe thro the entire tour with security protocol generally provided for Heads of State… #NZvPAK #NZvsPAK

It must be noted here that New Zealand Cricket ‘unilaterally decided to call off Pakistan tour’ citing security threats despite Prime Minister Imran Khan’s foolproof security assurance to New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
