New Zealand captain Williamson terms abrupt ending of Pakistan tour as ‘Shameful’

WELLINGTON: New Zealand cricket team captain Kane Stuart Williamson has termed an abrupt ending of the Pakistan tour as shameful.

Talking to the media on Monday, he said that cricket is highly supported in Pakistan. “New Zealand’s step to visit and play Pakistan was a good step. I hope the New Zealand players will have expressed annoyance over the cancellation of the series,” he added.

Williamson has said that Pakistan is a ‘special place’ for cricket and hopes the cancellation of the tour by the Kiwis doesn’t have a lasting impact on the hosts.

“They were obviously over there, ready to go to the ground. It is a sudden thing that happened. I certainly hope there is no lasting impact from it because it is a special place for cricket to be and there have been a lot of strides forward to see cricket go back into Pakistan and play there safely. We have seen that happen on a number of occasions, so hopefully, there is plenty more cricket there to come,” Williamson was quoted as saying by the media.
