Angelo Perera vouches for security arrangements in Pakistan!
Sri Lankan cricketer Angelo Perera took to social media reacting over New Zealand’s decision to pull out of the Pakistan tour over a “security alert”.
He recalled his last visit to Pakistan two years ago, terming it “every minute of it enjoyable and safe.”
Sharing a throwback photo from the tour, Perera in a tweet said, “Toured @TheRealPCB 2 years back and really enjoyed every minute of our stay!! Felt extremely welcomed and also safe tbh! Never had any doubt Genuinely wanna see cricket return to this great nation!”

Earlier in the day a number of international players come forward showing their support for cricket in Pakistan.
The @TheRealPCB and the government have worked so hard to get cricket back to Pakistan. Again I will say Pakistan is one of the safest places I’ve played cricket. The fans are amazing. I feel at home when I’m there. So disappointed right now. https://t.co/7vlGIRw73h pic.twitter.com/PUaZgG8qBS

Very sad to read about the cancellation of the NZ tour of Pakistan. Was part of the Sri Lanka tour last time and I must admit that besides the country being full of great people, the security was top class and attention paid to detail @TheRealPCB. Hope sanity prevails.
