New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson finally spoke about the cancellation of Kiwis tour to Pakistan last month which included five T20Is and three ODIs ahead of this year's T20 spectacle.  

The team even landed in Pakistan, but cancelled the entire tour just hours before the first contest citing security concerns. 

The New Zealand government had directed New Zealand Cricket to call the team back due to security issues and the cancellation left the Pakistan cricket fraternity upset.

On being asked about the whole saga, according to Crictracker, Williamson said it was unfortunate as the team was willing to play in Pakistan. 

The star-batter said: “That was obviously a very unfortunate, disappointing situation for Pakistan cricket fans and cricketers, a decision that wasn't in players' control. All the guys were looking forward to that series, and unfortunately, it didn't happen. So it was very disappointing for all involved.” 

Williamson's comments comes after Green Shirts outclassed his side by five wickets in T20 World Cup 2021 clash on Tuesday. 

The skipper was also asked about whether Pakistan players or fans were aggressive to his team. In response, the batter praised their opponents for showing the true spirit.
