According to local media, Pakistan was supposed to play the T20 series against New Zealand in the home ground and it would have been the first tour in 15 years to Pakistan. The chairman of New Zealand cricket board said that they will make the decision after receipt of the advisory and security reports. It would be very disappointing for Pakistan as they saw a tour by the country like New Zealand and they would start to build the international program back in Pakistan. It was not an easy decision as they want to maintain the good ties with Pakistan. It is hoped that Pakistan board can understand and accept the decision.

Pakistan Cricket Board were relying heavily on New Zealand to cooperate and it does not seem a big problem but it can create the ripple effect on the cricket in Pakistan as PCB has made great progress in the recent times.
