The security concerns in Pakistan have restricted the nation to host Australia and some other international teams too. Instead team Australia used to play with Pakistan in UAE.
New Zealand intended to play the series in Pakistan but due to security concerns of the players and the management, the tour was stopped in middle. England too canceled their tour amid security concerns.
The local media reported that Pakistan’s Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid has raised concerns over terrorism in the nation as according to Minister Sheikh the terrorist attack have increased since the United States withdrew from Afghanistan.
A separatist group has also been formed, newly, in the southwestern Balochistan reign. The group has claimed the responsibility for the attack via a text message to a Reuters reporter.
