After examining the match locations in Karachi, Lahore, Multan, and Islamabad, a security delegation from the England Cricket Board (ECB) deemed the measures in Pakistan to be “acceptable,” sources stated on Saturday.
Richard Snowball, Robert Lynch, John Carr, and Reg Dickson, the four-person ECB team that will accompany the England team on its trip to Pakistan later this year, arrived in the nation on July 17. They also had a meeting with the security personnel.
Two Test matches and seven Twenty20 games are scheduled for the English squad in September and December, respectively. The delegation will now present the ECB with its report.
Details indicate that after receiving a briefing from security personnel on the security offered to visit teams at the hotels and stadiums during their stay, the delegation judged the preparations “acceptable.”
The senior brass of the Punjab Police and security personnel were also met by the England security delegation. The security team received a briefing on the Safe City project’s security preparations and circumstances.
The English squad was also informed of the police force’s plans for the hotels, parking, and routes between the stadium and the airport.
Videos of the security offered to the teams visiting Pakistan were also displayed to the delegation.
Additionally discussed was the utilization of contemporary technologies and law enforcement organizations’ cooperation. The NHPC Lahore’s facilities were also inspected by the delegation’s four members.
