New Zealand hopeful of visiting Pakistan in near future – David White

After abandoning the tour of Pakistan moments before the first ODI in Rawalpindi in a usual fashion, the New Zealand Cricket’s (NZC) chief executive David White has expressed his concerns over the relationship with Pakistan Cricket Board.

The Blackcaps are hopeful of playing in Pakistan in the future. The NZC is confident of finding a way of rescheduling the abandoned tour.

“I think what’s important to point out is that for every tour we go on, whether it’s Pakistan or England or anywhere, that we go through a very thorough process covering security, etcetera. This was no exception. In fact, it was probably more in this case,” he said.

“I can’t answer that question [touring Pakistan] at the moment, it’s too early. But we’ll assess every tour on its merits,” added White.

New Zealand share a close relationship with Pakistan. “We’ve got a very close working relationship with Pakistan Cricket. We’d like to think that over the next few days, weeks, and months that we’ll work through this to ensure that we play the content that we’ve missed out on and we continue our close working relationship,” concluded the NZC chief.
