Explained: Why has New Zealand threatened to send the Pakistan cricket team back home?

After a long time of lockdown period due to the corona virus pandemic in almost all countries around the world, cricket finally resumed with England vs West Indies in July-August. After that we had the most entertaining tournament of the year, the IPL in September and October where players from all around the World participated along with the domestic players if India. 

Now when the things have improved, the international cricket has begun with immense intensity as we have 3 series taking place simultaneously. 

The England’s tour of South Africa, India’s tour of Australia and Pakistan’s tour of New Zealand are taking place together. The most amazing thing that is happening is that in the India vs Australia series the crowd is being allowed in the stadiums to be cheer for their team. 

Pak would try and improve:

The Pakistan team which has been in poor form against the big teams will look to make an impact against the blackcaps in the upcoming series. For the first time Pakistan will be led by Babar Azam in all the three formats of the game. Hence Pakistan will look for a change in fortunes, this time around. 

Players warned:

When Pakistan arrived in New Zealand for the long tour with 53 members on board, 6 members of their staff tested positive, all of which had tested negative back in Pakistan. Also the Pakistan players were found breaking isolation rules which they had to undergo for the period of 14 days as they were found eating food together and sharing eating items with each other. Looking at all this New Zealand authorities issued them strict warning that they’ll be sent back and no match will take place if the players don’t adhere to the guidelines.
