Tom Latham NZ missed the opportunity to share a historic and special moment with Pakistan – .


Tom Latham, New Zealand’s alternate captain of the canceled Pakistani series, admitted that the team’s decision to withdraw from the tour due to security concerns was “very disappointing” for Pakistani fans. Latham, who is currently in Dubai, spoke to New Zealand’s in-house media channel and detailed preparations for the fateful decision to cancel the tour minutes before the first ODI begins in Rawalpindi.
“It was like a normal game day,” he said, speaking from his hotel room. “We were leaving at 12:30 pm and then I got a message on my WhatsApp group saying we had a team meeting at 12 pm. Everyone was sort of wondering what was going on and then we were told we were going It was an interesting decision 24 hours after that decision but obviously NZC and the Players Association, everyone on the ground in Pakistan and NZ Cricket obviously had player safety first and foremost. For them getting us to Dubai in 24 hours was exceptional so the guys were very grateful for that. “
