ISLAMABAD, Sept 17 (Reuters) - The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said on Friday that New Zealand cricket officials had informed them that they were unilaterally suspending all their scheduled One Day International series in Pakistan after receiving a security alert.

The series was scheduled to begin on Friday.

"PCB is willing to continue the scheduled matches. However, cricket lovers in Pakistan and around the world will be disappointed by this last minute withdrawal," PCB said in statement. (Reporting by Gibran Peshimam Editing by Raissa Kasolowsky)
