Wasim Akram shares his views on New Zealand quitting Pakistan tour

Former Pakistan cricketer Wasim Akram has urged everyone to trust them and said that the country is safe and they can host international series also after the recent cancellation tour between Pakistan and New Zealand.

He also supported their security forces and stated that they are powerful too. However, he said that after New Zealand opted out of their tour of Pakistan when the first ODI in Rawalpindi on Friday was about to begin due to a security threat. And, the visitors left Islamabad on a charter flight on Saturday night only.

He said: “I think the world underestimates how powerful our security forces are. Cricket is more than a sport to us and we will do everything in our power to prevent cricket being taken from us again. The world needs to give us a chance to prove that!”

Meanwhile, NCZ chief executive David White has thanked the Pakistan Cricket Board for arranging their safe return.

He said on NZC’s official website: “We appreciate this has been a terribly difficult time for the PCB and wish to pass on our sincere thanks to chief executive Wasim Khan and his team for their professionalism and care.”

He continued: “What I can say is that we were advised this was a specific and credible threat against the team. We had several conversations with New Zealand government officials before making the decision and it was after informing the PCB of our position that we understand a telephone discussion was conducted between the respective Prime Ministers. Unfortunately, given the advice we’d received, there was no way we could stay in the country.”
