The veteran cricketer added: “[I] wonder, the same route [and] same security, but no threat today???”


The Kiwis, who arrived in Pakistan after 18 years, called off the tour citing security concerns.

The New Zealand cricket team was pulled out of Pakistan at the last minute after the Five Eyes, an intelligence alliance of New Zealand, Australia, Canada, United States, and the United Kingdom, advised Wellington to do so, NZ Herald reported.
