Cricket - Pakistan's security agencies had no alert of possible attack on New Zealand team - Pakistan minister

LONDON (Reuters) - New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told her Pakistani counterpart Imran Khan on Friday that the New Zealand cricket team could have been attacked, Pakistan's interior minister said.

New Zealand called off a limited over series in Pakistan just hours before the first play on Friday, citing a security threat.

Sheikh Rasheed, the interior minister, also said that Pakistan's security agencies had received no alert about a possible attack on the team.
