Ashton Agar’s wife receives death threat ahead of Australia’s tour of Pakistan


According to recent developments, Australian all-rounder Ashton Agar's wife Madeleine has been advised not to fly to Pakistan by the cricketer. In particular, Pakistan will host Australia in a historic all-format tour on March 4. The tour will include three Tests, as many ODIs, and a single T20I, with Agar named in all squads.

It's worth noting that this is Australia's first visit to Pakistan since 1998. As a result, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) would like all matches to go off without a hitch. On the other hand, Agar's partner has been threatened on social media, according to reports. The incident was reported to the PCB, and Cricket Australia launched an investigation.

Ashton Agar is optimistic about the death threat to his wife
A team official confirmed to The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age that Agar was the target of a death threat. The threat, however, was discovered to be false and received from a bogus Instagram account, maybe in India, by the team security. Despite the direct communication made to his wife, Agar was in "excellent spirits."

Meanwhile, it should be recalled that both New Zealand and England intended to visit Pakistan last year. However, the cricket bodies of both countries cancelled the visit for various reasons. Team New Zealand cited security concerns as the reason for their choice, which sparked a debate. On the other hand, Australian players have arrived in Pakistan and are unconcerned about security.
