NZ Sets Wrong Precedent Of Unilateral Decision To End Tour: Wasim Khan

Pakistan Cricket Board Chief Executive Officer Wasim Khan has said that New Zealand has set a wrong precedent of unilateral decision to end the tour.

In a statement about the return of the New Zealand team, Wasim Khan said that this decision will affect the relations between the two boards.

PCB Chief Executive Officer mentioned that ESI Security Services Head Rig Dixon telephoned us on Friday and said that there is a risk of an attack on the New Zealand team.

Wasim Khan also maintained that when he contacted the security agencies, it became clear that there was no threat.

He added that canceling the New Zealand series was a unilateral decision and the matter will be taken up with the ICC.

Wasim Khan said Pakistan cricket team quarantined for 14 days in New Zealand and Pakistan played a series despite the Mosque attack.

PCB CEO said Sri Lanka Cricket Board and the Bangladesh Cricket Board showed a willingness to play in Pakistan, but there was little time for those boards to send their teams.

Wasim Khan has claimed a "clean bill of health from a security perspective", adding that he expects England to reach Pakistan on schedule in October and play their games on the due dates.
