New Zealand Nix Pak Tour Over "Security Alert" Just Before ODI, To Return

New Zealand pulled out of their white-ball tour of Pakistan just before the start of the first ODI in Rawalpindi on Friday due to a "security alert" and arrangements are being made "for the team's departure". New Zealand Cricket (NZC) in a statement said that the team will not continue with the tour following an "escalation in the New Zealand Government threat levels for Pakistan". New Zealand were set to play Pakistan in a three-match ODI series followed by a five-match T20I series.
