After 18 years, The New Zealand Cricket (NZC) is positive about touring Pakistan.
As per to stuff.co.nz, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) is keeping an open mind about a reciprocal tour of Pakistan next year but is yet to commit.
Pakistan is scheduled to host the New Zealand for 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is in September under the Future Tours Programme (FTP)
After the New Zealand tour, England will play 2 T20Is in Karachi as they confirmed the tour a few weeks back.
Richard Boock, The New Zealand Cricket (NZC) public affairs manager said the Black Caps were locked in for that series, but venues of the series are yet to be finalized.
Boock said that “Regarding location, nothing’s been decided yet but we do note the decision of England and are keeping an open mind on the issue,” “We’re yet to discuss this matter with the players or players association so have no set position at this point,” he said.
Chief Executive Heath of New Zealand Cricket Players’ Association , Mills said a comprehensive security assessment would be required before confirming the tour.
Mills said that “Yes, absolutely we need to be looking at it and considering touring there [Pakistan] again, there’s no question about that, but as always we’re expressing caution: what does that involve, is it one or two games or is it a full tour, how many cities are involved and what is the risk in each place?”
