It took some effort and pain to come to Pakistan but after the previous effort, one can only thank them for making this journey and playing the games with their full energies, and without any fuss!

They have now departed for India.

Kane Williamson:

A great series, a lot of good contributions together. It's absolutely great to be here. as a team, we have really enjoyed our time, on and off the field. It has a been a special experience to play in Pakistan.
 
wonder what was special
the flat pitches or the empty stadiums
 
Don’t think we need to be thanking teams for every small series.

Especially as the precedent has now been set. New Zealand has to come after England did a full series. And not to mention they bottled it last year.

You need to understand the background. This was a huge trip for NZ to take and for that we must thank them.
 
Thank you for what?

We need to get out of this inferior mentality. They abided by their FTP for once, we shouldn’t do a bhangra over that mate.

After their stunt not so long ago, they should be the ones thanking the PCB for the opportunity to tour Pakistan. We’ve not asked them to get on their knees to apologise for the past and a thank you from the PCB / Pakistan fans is inconceivable really

Then why did we thank England?

It's simply a matter of good manners.

NZ could well have made any excuse along the way and left. You and I know that the country is in the grip of a major TTP-led terrorist attack - we have people dying every day. Anyone of the those atrocities could have been cited as a reason to leave.

For a country like Pakistan we can’t take anything for granted.

Being treated fairly is a luxury for a third world country. We also thank our security agencies for their efforts.

Yes agreed.

More from Kane Williamson :

"It is special, we always know whether it is home or away, it is always tough the cricket against Pakistan, they are a very strong side"

"So to come here and play well as a unit throughout the series and getting a series win is a very good effort by the team and another great opportunity to take a lot of learnings from it as well."

"I think they have been very competitive pitches, been a nice balance between bat and ball I suppose we have seen some that have spun a lot and some that perhaps haven't.

"As sides you are trying to adjust your games to be effective with the bat and the ball and almost reflective of tournament cricket, where you play at different venues. Although we have been in Karachi, we have seen a variety of conditions, it is that time of the year it has probably got to do with it.

"Seeing all games be quite tight, fast bowlers and spinners getting reverse swing and spin off the wicket, and batters having to work hard and getting through tough periods, it is different to back home and definitely competitive."
 
Thanks for coming and I hope the next visit is pretty soon. The NZ cricketers are the most likeable in World cricket and In Kane Williamson they have a top player,one of the best of his generation but also a guy that can be truly held up as a role model player.

The background is New Zealand screwed us over. England screwed us over too, then they came. We didn't need to thank them either. And we certainly don't need to thank New Zealand for honouring their FTP commitment.

Also who are we thanking? The players or the New Zealand government?

Who did we blame last time NZ decided to leave? We were all talking about grudge matches in the T20 World Cup etc

Like I said, NZ coming over to Pakistan is a big deal.

Yes, from now on it should be business as usual but this tour HAD to happen safely which it did.

Ind didn't come and they didn't fulfil their commitments. Nobody has to come

Williamson is bland and overrated. Choked in WC finals twice. Hardly a role model. They toured like they should have no need to thank them.
 
I would like to thank the miserable home season finally being over. The past couple of months have been the absolute worst to watch this team since 2015 debacle. Thank you that it is finally over and we don't have to watch this miserable & incompetent team for a few months.

Maybe you should read this before going on. And what makes you think he isnt. And they are not obliged to come unless you have a way to force them.

I think we’re past the thank you stage. These guys are getting presidential level security these days, people in Karachi see it as a massive inconvenience with roads being blocked off and it taking double the time to get to where you want to go during match days (on top of the already major traffic issues of the city)

It’s NZ that should be thanking us, which they did.

If we try to come off too sweet with them then they will show nakhray like England did with the whole “we didn’t like Lahore food” which is rich coming from people of the land of the most bland and tasteless cuisine on the planet.

Until no one turns up for a decade. I keep saying it, none of these guys have to come and the best we can do is not go in return and tbh as they dont get much from TV money from PK, they would lose a little in the short term but that would damage us even more in the long term

What's it like being so cynical & miserable?

NZ thanked Pakistan and Pakistan thanked NZ, and the players got along well. Get over yourself with your negativity.

But if they don't feel safe and don't want to come, what would you do.

Come on bro, that was a joke. They were already in the country and then some dude sat somewhere in India sent over a twitter message or something.

Then they ran like school girls without even consulting the Pak authorities.
 
Decent tour. Just wish the Test series had produced a winner and not ended up in a turgid 0-0.

Your right but the fact is that we need them and they don't need us.
 
Bradman got zero in his last innings. A terrible player.lol

Difference is Bradman had announced his retirement before scoring 0 in his last innings.

At thread - I am not thanking NZ, unless Babar is sacked as captain as a consequence of this tour.
 
Probably the easiest tour they've ever had in Pakistan.

They'll be laughing all the way to their homeland.

I said Williamson was one of the top players of his generation and he gave that stat.

They're going straight over the border aren't they? So they can laugh together with the Indians.
 
NZ will come back with B-Team in April for 5 ODI & 5 T20. Perfect opportunity for Pakistan to thrash them.

These players will not be there due to IPL.

Yes Pakistan should be able to win at home vs. a NZ B side.
 
New Zealand should be bitterly disappointed that they didn’t sweep the Test series. Pakistan was at their mercy in both matches but they didn’t show enough urgency.

And they'll be back later this year for more laughter and another easy ride.

Yep they deserved to win the tests without a shadow of doubt.
 
Thank you New Zealand for exposing this gutless team. Thank you for exposing our useless captain.

A silver lining to this tour would be that there will be changes. But, Babar upped his stats, Rizwan did too. All is good. No silver lining.
