The PCB hoped to host the T20I leg of the tour. <p></p> <p></p>"At the end of the day it came down to following the advisory and the security reports we had obtained," NZC chairman Greg Barclay told Newshub. <p></p> <p></p>"There's no doubt they (Pakistan Cricket Board) are disappointed. I think they saw a tour by a country like New Zealand as being a great precedent for them to start to build an international programme back in Pakistan. So they're disappointed but they're good guys, we get on really well with Pakistan, and I think they're fully accepting of the decision that we've reached." <p></p> <p></p>Since the 2009 terror attack on the Sri Lanka team bus, Pakistan have made UAE their home. <p></p> <p></p>In May 2015, Zimbabwe became the first team since the ghastly incident to go to Pakistan for a short limited-overs series, which was marred by a blast near the Gaddafi Stadium. <p></p> <p></p>Recently, a depleted West Indies squad toured Pakistan for three T20Is in as many days.
