As per the reports, the security agencies hired for the Blackcaps have cost PCB around INRT 27 lakhs only on the food bills.

There were five SPs and over 500 SSPs (police officers) deployed for the security of the Kiwis along with the Pakistan Army in Islamabad and Rawalpindi.

“The side was to play Pakistan this evening in the first of three ODIs in Rawalpindi, before moving to Lahore for a five-match T20 series. However, following an escalation in the New Zealand Government threat levels for Pakistan, and advice from NZC security advisors on the ground, it has been decided the BLACKCAPS will not continue with the tour,” NZC said in the statement calling off the tour.
