Pakistan eager for cricket match revenge

From Morning Report, 8:51 am on 26 October 2021

The Black Caps insist they're not bothered by any extra attention on their opening match at cricket's T20 World Cup.

New Zealand start their tournament against Pakistan in Sharjah early tomorrow morning.

The game comes little more than a month after the Black Caps' sudden withdrawal from Pakistan due to a security threat - a move which angered fans, players and officials in the cricket-mad nation.

But, as Felicity Reid reports, the New Zealand camp say tomorrow's match is about nothing more than starting their World Cup on a winning note.
