    Confirmation from New Zealand Cricket -- that the threat against the Black Caps was a specific threat against New Zealand

    Confirmation from New Zealand Cricket -- that the threat against the Black Caps was a specific threat against New Zealand


    The Black Caps tour of Pakistan was abruptly cancelled on Friday night, just minutes before the first ball was due to be bowled, due to intelligence about a credible threat.

    The players and support staff are now in Dubai, with most due to return to New Zealand in the coming week.

    New Zealand Cricket Chief Executive David White says the threat wasn't against touring cricket teams -- but specifically against the Black Caps.

    He says they'd done all the checks, but everything changed when they were told by the Government of a credible threat against the New Zealand cricket team.
