Squad of the New Zealand cricket team left Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: (HRNW) A 33-member squad of the New Zealand cricket team on Saturday left Pakistan for United Arab Emirates (UAE), a day after the country announced to pull out from the scheduled five-match T-20 series.    

A chartered plane had arrived at the Islamabad International Airport earlier in the day after a delay of over an hour to fetch the New Zealand players. The plane earlier had to arrive at the Islamabad airport at 5:00 pm.

“Before their departure, the players underwent a COVID test that came out negative, paving way for their exit,” they said.

The media statement of Pakistan Cricket Board, following the postponement of the first of one day international (ODI), said that New Zealand Cricket unilaterally decided to postpone the series.

Separately the official Twitter handle of New Zealand Cricket also confirmed the development and said, “arrangements are now being made for the team’s departure.”
