    The threat level in Pakistan has risen, honestly I trust our government more than the PCB or Pakistan's government. You would be the same.

    There is no coming back after this humiliation. We are back to square one.
    If the reports that Imran personally called NZ PM and assured of best security at the hands of the best intelligence agency are true then the magnitude of this debacle goes up in spades.

    My hunch is the NZ security advisors got some really bad intelligence to call this tour off right now.

    Let’s also add what has happened in Afghanistan in the mix and that makes them even more jittery

    We will, of course, blame India as usual. However, whether we blame India or Sudan, we are back to square one.
    It's idiotic to blame NZC for choosing not to disregard what the government has advised and risk their lives for a game of cricket. It's disappointing to see so many people here blame NZC for this. No game is worth risking your life for.

    Let's hope the Kiwi players and staff can get safely to their country. Not their fault.

    And we should wait for the minister's presser later on.

    The Western or more so the Developed World's view of terrorism and security is different from the Desi mindset. B'desh toured NZ and were nearly involved in the mosque incident but they were brave enough to continue knowing that this was a lone wolf attack and chances of that happening again immediately are rare.

    If the Talib takeover of Afg was the reason, then the tour would have been cancelled and everyone could have saved on flight tickets but if this had to happen a few hours back, there should have been something credible and am sure this is shared with the PCB. Whether it comes out in the open needs to be seen but PCB always seem to have leaks, so wait for a day or 2.

    PS: I am sad that no cricket is taking place, I came in here today to check where this was being streamed.

    If there is no genuine security threat, PCB and Pakistan government should take a firm stance on this. No more shifting series to neutral venues drama. This will keep on happening forever if we don't put our foot down now.

    Very poor media release by the PCB.

    The Kiwis wouldn’t have gone to Pakistan if they didn’t intend to play.

    Does anyone seriously expect them to defy a security alert from their own government?

    The situation is unfortunate, but the PCB press release is a disgrace.

    No one is against NZ team here. They are supposed follow what govt orders.

    But govt. needs to come up with enough evidence of threat, otherwise it is just a hoax.

    I doubt anybody will tour after this this is a gaffe of epic proportions,in before people blame nz cricket team , questions need to be asked about the security as well plus govt ,why would a country that has been at the recieving end in 02,comes after 19 yrs would bow out of tour ,there must have been solid inputs.

    Few days back, @Junaids wrote that the reemergence of Taliban will ensure that the big teams do not tour Pakistan.

    He was 100% correct. Our ambitions of hosting the major sides are done and dusted.

    I would suggest Bangladesh or Sri Lanka as an alternative venue to UAE. They have better pitches.

    If given the choice between continuing or risking forfeiting, I'm pretty sure NZC is taking the forfeit. This wont do Pakistan any good and will further alienate them from other teams because of how they conduct their business.

    So why did Bangladesh continue to tour?

    Or perhaps you are snobbishly suggesting that the life of a NZ player is worth more than life of a Pakistani/Bangladeshi.

    Sir @Mamoon was right that a single threat will be enough to damage whatever Nazam Seth and then following him Wasim Khan did for bringing teams to Pakistan. Now even Zimbawe wont come. Teams are already somehow managing to play in these covid times and then this security threat. Now ENG, AUS wont take two risks together so they wont even think of coming to Pak.

    Please stop blaming India for what has happened now without credible info. I doubt BCCI would ask NZ not to tour Pak, their interest lies with Kashmir and as long as that part isnt involved, they don't care. I also highly doubt if Modi (its his bday today) would have influenced the NZ PM to cancel the tour, we Indians don't care much as long as it doesn't involve 'K'.

    Could RAW have done something naughty? This would have been porbable if Afg had the earlier India friendly govt, definitely not now with Talib in charge.

    Another possibility, considering how close NZ and USA are, and with the displeasure expressed by USA top guns on Pakistan's involvement in toppling the Afg govt, would it be possible that this is vengeance by USA by looping in their close friends to boycott Pakistan.

    PS: I am sad that no cricket is taking place, I came in here today to check where this was being streamed.
    Oh common what rubbish these were small games of cricket. Why would someone like USA have anytime to even think about these games?

    If NZ government ain’t going to share the intelligence of this threat what do you expect PCB to say ?

    Like I said I don’t blame their players or even their board.

    My gut feeling is they got some poor intelligence and just panicked at the last minute.

    A shame really, no one wins and Pak cricket loses big time. And their fans of course

    Reports security advisors at the ground also advised the team against travelling to the ground.

    No need to blame others. (NZ players or India etc.)

    At this point no need to even blame PCB or pakistanis. If this is coming to light right before the match whilst the team has been in pindi so long it means security arrangements were fine

    If threat level update is related to Afghan situation then nothing we can do.

    [QUOTE=loves_cricket;11295896] Seriously? We are so powerful

    In the current scenario even a visit by those teams looks improbable.

    Like I said I don’t blame their players or even their board.

    My gut feeling is they got some poor intelligence and just panicked at the last minute.

    A shame really, no one wins and Pak cricket loses big time. And their fans of course
    Early stages, what happened will all come out in a few days. I feel some are letting their emotions cloud their judgement, remains to be seen if there was a credible threat or hoax. Either way, NZC have their right to not continue.

    To call the whole tour of at the last moment and to make arrangement for departure suggests this story has been developing for days and that the New Zealand security agency have absolute evidence of a massive security threat.

    You don't call of things at the last moment and start to make departure arrangements unless you are absolutely sure of a security threat and have lead for it than Pakistani security agency.

    Let's drop the hysteria for one second and think logically. NZ had already committed to the tour, so it likely had to be something serious like a an planned attack at the ground or teams' hotel.

    Why people would blame the NZ team or cricket board, and whining about pay-back etc is beyond me. They've been instructed by their government.

    And lest we forget the hotel bombing when NZ last visited in 2002.

    The team would be crazy to defy the advice of their government & risk it, especially for a meaningless series against a NZ C team.

    Get a grip people.

    I can understand Pakistani fans. Many are extremely frustrated of this outcome. Particularly the sudden nature of it.

    But I agree. Give it a few days and we'll have much more to uncover and see.

    I'm sorry but this situation is totally stupid. We have provided top level security to touring teams with so many added barriers to our supporters such as multiple checkpoints and closures in and around the stadia. If there is a threat then that needs to be proven credible. This sounds terribly like external meddling.

    Flying out immediately may not be appropriate. Should wait for things to calm down and then fly. Its not easy to fly immediately after having faced a terror threat.

    Pakistan was always going to pay a price for its horrendous geopolitical strategy and tacit antagonism against the west due to its close association with China. No sympathies at all.

    Not immediately, actual phrasing used was arrangements are being made for their departure. Some other tweet said they were flying out immediately.

    Very wrong move by imran to personally call the nz PM. It reeks of desperation.
    Already its major headlines in bbc , al Jazeera , etc.
    With the way the Afghanistan situation has devolved , and imran khan shooting his mouth off about the western countries in Afghanistan, it seems to be payback time.
    Remember India and Pakistan played in sri Lanka when the aussies withdrew during the civil war.
    Also England continued their tour of India inspite of the Mumbai attacks .
    Their is a strong political element in sports and you cant keep on badmouthing countries and expect sports to continue ss usual.

    These are going to come out in the coming days. Given NZC, the NZ government and NZPA all think there is no choice but to leave suggests there's a serious threat. The way they've phrased it makes it sound serious as well, both countries Prime Minister's also involved.

    This is shocking, shameless stuff from the NZ govt. I refuse to believe that their intel was better than the intel on the ground of our security agencies. The sheer breath and comprehensiveness of the security arrangements itself was astonishing. As someone who lives in Pindi I have seen first-hand how comprehensive they are. A journalist covering the series said the arrangements were even comprehensive than he had seen in recent times.

    The NZ govt. should be ashamed of themselves. They have not just cancelled an entire tour on bad intel but caused long-standing damage to Pakistan cricket and everything it has done in the last few years to bring cricket back.

    Btw it has nothing to do with a security threat. It is global politics at play. Pakistan keeps on asking from approval from the very people that despise them. People will say I am extreme or an idiot but until people understand that they'll keep on licking on the boots of their previous rulers.

    Global politics?

    NZ and Pakistan have good relations. Why would they ruin relations?

    Would had made sense if it was Bangladesh or India or even Afg.

    I feel pained by the this event. It is beyond me to explain my disappointment. I had been waiting months for this tour. This tour was an ill thought plan with situation in Afghanistan as uncertain it is.

    Sorry for you Pak fans, as a fellow Desi I cant tell you how much Sport has integrated our society and helped India grow over the past 10-15 years. Unlike the West its not easy for us to just hop in a car and go watch our favorite team play a Sport. But of late (before Covid atleast) it was a possibility.
