The Australian all-rounder, Aston Agar received a death threat ahead of Australia vs. Pakistan series. Agar’s wife Madeleine received messages on social media threatening her about his husband’s travel to Pakistan. The matter has been reported to PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) and Cricket Australia and an investigation was subsequently conducted.
As per The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, a team spokesperson has confirmed that Agar was the subject of the death threat. However, the intelligence team has found out that the threat is not credible and has been sent from a fake Instagram account, potentially from India.
However, Aston Agar is believed to be in good spirits despite the fact that her wife received death threats about him.
Last year the same scenario happened with the New Zealand team. Martin Guptill’s wife Laura received a threatening email ahead of the tour. Ultimately, New Zealand abandoned the tour at the last minute due to security concerns. Moreover, England has also abandoned both men’s and women’s tours of Pakistan due to security reasons.
