PCB sends security plan for Bangladesh's cricket tour to ICC

Islamabad, Apr 20(ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has sent a 70-page security plan of the country's proposed limited-overs games against Bangladesh to the International Cricket Council (ICC).

According to the plan, the visitors will be provided a presidential-level security, with 2000 policemen patrolling the route from the hotel to the stadium. About 1200 policemen will be present at the stadium, while the team is playing at the venue.

The PCB has scheduled a meeting in this regard that would be attended by various security agencies, The Daily Times reports.

The PCB had delayed sending the security plan to the ICC due to a deadlock between the federal government and the Punjab Government.

The ICC's response to the security report, however, will have no direct bearing on the tour itself, as bilateral series are decided by the countries involved and the ICC's remit is restricted to assessing the safety of its officials. (ANI)
