Read the chilling death threat sent to Australian cricket star’s wife as team arrives in Pakistan surrounded by 4,000 police and soldiers: ‘Our snipers will blow his head’
Authorities are investigating an alleged death threat to Ashton Agar’s partner urging the Australian cricketer to not to travel to Pakistan for an upcoming tour.
A message reportedly sent to Agar’s partner Madeleine has been reported to Cricket Australia and the Pakistan Cricket Board.
There is a suggestion the message was from a fake Instagram account, potentially from India.
‘This is a warning for your husband Ashton Agar if he comes to tour against Pakistan he won’t come [back] alive,’ part of the message read.
The message obtained by Nine Newspapers also referred to Agar’s children, which he doesn’t have.
A team spokesperson confirmed Agar was the subject of a death threat but do not believe it is a credible threat.
‘Cricket Australia is aware of a social media post, of which the nature and content has been investigated by the PCB, CA and combined government security agencies,’ a statement read.
‘There are extensive security plans in place for this type of social media activity, which, in this case, is not considered a risk. No further comment will be made at this time.’
