"I'm satisfied New Zealand Cricket is getting the safety issue right by sending people over there," he said Tuesday. "Pakistan need us to tour and if it is safe enough we are happy to go. It means we will have a hectic time and there are concerns we will lose players along the way because there is a lot of cricket to be played but that is what we enjoy doing."Fleming's side is 2-0 up in the One-day series against England and can seal victory by winning at McLean Park on Wednesday evening.
