BCB ‘satisfied’ with Pakistan security arrangements
The Bangladesh delegation sent to inspect security arrangements in Pakistan is “satisfied” with the infrastructure and BCB president Mustafa Kamal has said he is keen to send the Bangladesh team on a tour of Pakistan. Now, both boards are seeking consent from the ICC to go ahead with the tour that is proposed for April this year.
“After seeing all the security arrangements all of us agree and are satisfied that the security infrastructure is in place,” Kamal said at a press conference in Lahore. “Now it is my responsibility to convince my government to allow the tour and also request the ICC to approve the tour. Since the ICC governs and regulates the game we have to take this issue to them and must bring it to their notice that we want to send a team.”
A nine-member delegation, headed by Kamal, had been sent on a two-day visit to Pakistan to observe a demonstration of the security plan for the proposed series. Kamal had said he was positive about the tour after a meeting in which the security plan was explained on Saturday.
