The fixtures are not announced yet. With the situation improving in recent years, PCB had hoped that a visit from a high profile team such as New Zealand would convince other teams.
The NZC Chairman, Greg Barclay said that they took this decision after looking at the security reports and the current scenario in Pakistan.More news: In Italy's Conte, Trump sees a like-minded European
"There's no doubt they (PCB) are disappointed". "So they're disappointed but they're good guys, we get on really well with Pakistan, and I think they're fully accepting of the decision that we've reached", he added.
In a first in New Zealand's cricket history, the women's matches will be televised. Virat Kohli's Team India and the women's squad are slated to land in New Zealand in late January 2019, with the men facing the Blackcaps for five ODIs and three T20Is followed by three ODIs and three T20Is between the women's team and the White Ferns.
The three-match T20 series will follow the ODI series and the first match will be played in Wellington on February 6. Hamilton will be the next venue as it will hold an ODI on January 31 and the final match of the five-match series will be played in Wellington on February 3.
Barclay said the success of the West Indies tour was taken into consideration when New Zealand Cricket made its decision. Besides, the Indian women's teams will also feature in three T20I double-headers in early February. A bomb blast outside their hotel in Karachi in 2003 brought their tour to a premature end.More news: Audacious Russell powers Windies to series lead
Barclay said NZC sympathised with Pakistan's current financial plight with barely any worldwide teams willing to tour there for security reasons, particularly after an attack on the Sri Lankan team's bus in Lahore in 2009.
"We were communicated very well about the issues or incidents that may arise here, but we haven't seen any of them".
