There are extensive security plans in place for this type of social media activity, which, in this case, is not considered a risk. No further comment will be made at this time.”

How does Pakistan respond to the death threat of Ashton Agar?

No international team came to Pakistan since 2009 when Sri Lanka’s bus was under attack in Lahore. And Australia last played in Pakistan in 1998.

Everyone is aware of Agar’s death threats. Pakistan cricket board claimed that it’s a conspiracy of Indians to ruin the Pakistan tour of Australia. India didn’t say anything yet in response.

On the Pakistan tour, we will see Pakistan-born Australian batsman Usman Khawaja. He is very much excited to play in this homeland. He says, “The fact I’m playing in Pakistan is special, don’t get me wrong, it’s very special, and something I’ve always wanted to do.

There’s a bit of sentiment there but once the game starts you don’t think about that stuff, you’re more worried about the ball coming down.”
