New Zealand turn down tour to Pakistan due to security concerns.

The Black Caps will play Pakistan in a series in the United Arab Emirates in October and Pakistan had asked for the Twenty20 matches to be on home soil.

Pakistan have played their home matches mainly in the UAE following an attack on the Sri Lanka team in 2009.

New Zealand’s last visit to Pakistan was 15 years ago, a year after their previous tour ended early when a bomb exploded outside their hotel in Karachi.

In April, West Indies became the first team to tour Pakistan in nine years.
