As noted in a statement, although the PCB was promptly alerted to the broad threat, White reiterated that particular information could not be provided – privately or publicly – and would not be released in the future. The choice to play in Pakistan – New Zealand’s first visit of the nation in 18 years – was originally comfortable, according to White, who added that “everything changed on Friday.” White said that thorough inspections of the security situation led to the decision to play in Pakistan.
‘We went through security evaluations, and we were assured of the very high degree of protection that would be given,’ he said.” As well as the amount of teams that have visited lately – South Africa a few months ago, the West Indies, Zimbabwe… we made a choice to go there based on these factors. Everything changed on Friday. As a result of these changes, we were forced to take the only appropriate course of action available to us. The conclusion we came to is one that I am comfortable with.”
