Photo / Getty Images New Zealand cricket great Glenn Turner is "astonished" the Black Caps embarked on their Pakistan tour given concerns about player safety and Covid-19. The Black Caps' tour of Pakistan - the team's first in 18 years - was abandoned last night moments before the first of three one-day internationals in Rawalpindi, because of security concerns. New Zealand Cricket later announced the players would be returning home. Former test captain Turner, a veteran of 41 tests and the same number of ODIs, says he has long had concerns about the safety of the cricketers in Pakistan, and on Saturday told the Herald his fears had been proven right. Advertisement In an open letter last month, Turner questioned NZC's decision to send a team to Pakistan, saying the country "is not only Covid-19 ravaged... but even more concerning are the developments of Taliban successes in neighbouring Afghanistan". "At the end of that [letter] I said we can only hope this fear turns out to be benign, but it hasn't been," Turner, who was also a national selector, told the Herald. "I was astonished actually that NZ Cricket would allow that to occur in the first instance."

Last night White issued a statement saying it was "simply not possible" to continue with the tour given the information he was receiving from on-the-ground security advisers. Advertisement Separate from the precarious situation in neighbouring Afghanistan, Turner said he did not believe the Black Caps should have toured during the pandemic. "I think the sporting world generally needs to do what the rest of us are doing, sitting this Covid thing out for starters instead of rushing to go overseas and continuing," he said.

"New Zealand Cricket and other sports bodies it seems are so geared to cover their costs that they'll risk sending their teams around the world and all the complications that come with it." With the situation in Afghanistan and media reports of possible attacks on the players, Turner said it had "seemed a no-brainer" to sit the tour out. "I was hoping it wouldn't happen, and it could've been much worse," he said. Advertisement
