The team cited security threats as the reason to abandon the most-awaited event. Pakistanis were absolutely distraught to hear the news as they’d been looking forward to the face-off for quite some time. The announcement of the tour had come as a breath of fresh air because the black caps had not visited the country for 18 years. This news gave hope to cricket lovers because they thought things were getting better for the homeland in the sports realm.

However, their world came crashing down when NZ decided to pull out of the tour. Many of the despondent fans took to Twitter to express their dismay at the sudden change of plans. They even called out the blackcaps for their lack of professionalism.

Nevertheless, Mr look-at-the-bright side, Chris Gayle, once again came to the broken-hearted’s rescue and announced on Twitter that he’s going to Pakistan. Adding to that, he asked if anyone else was coming with him.

Pakistani left-arm pacer, Muhammed Amir promptly welcomed the Jamaican cricketer in Pakistan. “See u there, legend,” Amir said in reply to his tweet. 

There were many netizens who appreciated the legendary cricketer’s comments and praised him for his empathy.
