New Zealand will visit Pakistan in order to play 3 ODI and 5 T20I bilateral series in the month of September. But after the Taliban's invasion of Afghanistan, New Zealand's momentous visit to Pakistan is in jeopardy. Because of the security situation in the nation, the New Zealand Cricket Board is worried, and players have also stated their fears. If the tournament proceeds as intended, it will be New Zealand's first visit to Pakistan in 18 years. In the meanwhile, New Zealand wants to review the security conditions in Pakistan before making a final decision on the visit.
