Shafqat Naghmi, the PCB’s chief operating officer is shuttling between the three venues; Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore, prepared for the upcoming Champion’s Trophy. Between August 10 and 12, International Cricket Council will send a comprehensive task forces which would asses, monitor, analyze the security measures and arrangements taken by Pakistan Cricket Board and then ICC would give its final verdict.
Instead of bowing down, PCB is fighting head to toe to ensure the security arrangements, and they have even asked for international help in that regard, and have standardized many things, and now if ICC Task force gives any negative comments, then it would be a fateful event for the PCB.
The all-important task force will be led by David Morgan, the ICC president, and will include Sharad Pawar (vice-president), Haroon Lorgat (CEO), IS Bindra (principal advisor), Tim May, the chief executive of the Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations, representatives of ESPN-Star (the broadcasters of the event) and the board’s security consultants.
The ICC security delegation was constituted after a teleconference among top ICC officials on July 24 in ICC headquarters in Dubai, when it was decided that the Champions Trophy would go ahead in Pakistan as scheduled despite security concerns, though the reservations from the players’ associations from Australia, England, South Africa and New Zealand still remain intact.More on:Australia, england, ESPN Star, Haroon Lorgat, IS Bindra, Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, New Zealand, Pakistan Cricket Board, PCB, Shafqat Naghmi, Sharad Pawar, South Africa
