The New Zealand team has been granted clearance for their limited-overs tour of Pakistan by a security team of New Zealand Cricket (NZC).

“The pre-tour check has been completed and the tour will be continuing as planned so far,” confirmed Heath Mills, chief executive of the New Zealand Cricket Players Association (NZCPA), to Cricbuzz on Thursday (September 2). “We have confidence in the security team and the various arrangements in place for the tour,” Mills said.

“During their visit, they have also met with all the relevant security personnel and discussed security and medical arrangements (bio-secure), following which they submitted their report to the NZC,” Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said.

“Reg will stay with the NZ team until the end of their tour, while David will stay until the conclusion of England women’s tour of Rawalpindi,” the PCB confirmed.
