Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar believes that New Zealand have “killed Pakistan cricket” by abandoning the tour of Pakistan.
New Zealand on Friday abandoned their limited-overs series in Pakistan after receiving a security alert. The veteran cricketer stated that the decision by New Zealand Cricket will greatly affect Pakistan cricket.
“New Zealand cricket team has been in Islamabad for the past four to five days and they were staying under foolproof security. But all of a sudden, they took this decision after getting some intelligence reports,” said on his YouTube channel.
“These security alerts are always there but you have to trust Pakistan as one of the safe heavens in the world. Our ISI and law enforcement agencies are working relentlessly to ensure peace,” he said.
He was disappointed with the New Zealand cricket and believe they should have trusted the Pakistan security and this action would put a bad impression on Pakistan.
“They should have trusted our intelligence and not embarrass us like this. It would have been better if you had decided against touring Pakistan altogether. Leaving the tour like this will give bad name to Pakistan. Security threat is everywhere in the world so you should have trusted our security system,” he added.
