(News 1st): The Blackcaps are abandoning their tour of Pakistan following a New Zealand Government security alert, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) informed today (17).

The side was to play Pakistan this evening in the first of three ODIs in Rawalpindi, before moving to Lahore for a five match T20 series.

However, following an escalation in the New Zealand Government threat levels for Pakistan, and advice from NZC security advisors on the ground, it has been decided the BLACKCAPS will not continue with the tour.

Arrangements are now being made for the team’s departure, a release by New Zealand said.

NZC said it will not comment on the details of the security threat nor the updated arrangements for the departing squad.
