Security tightened around New Zealand women’s cricket team in England after threat | Cricket News – Times of India
England earlier withdrew their men’s and women’s teams from next month’s tour of Pakistan, three days after New Zealand abandoned their tour of the country amid security concerns.
New Zealand Cricket said a threatening email had been sent to the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).
The www.espncricinfo.com website reported that a member of the New Zealand team management was told a bomb would be placed at the team hotel.
“As has been reported, the ECB have received a threatening email relating to NZC,” the NZ Cricket statement said. “Although this did not specifically reference the White Ferns, it was treated seriously, investigated and deemed not credible.
“The White Ferns have now arrived in Leicester and, as a precaution, security around them has been boosted.”
England lead the five match series 2-0.
