ECB security team leaves Pakistan ‘satisfied’
On Saturday, a team from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) came back from a crucial trip to Pakistan and said that security was “acceptable.” The English national team will play seven Twenty20 internationals and two Tests between September and December. Reg Dickson and the other three members of the ECB’s four-person delegation arrived in Pakistan on July 17 and met with the country’s security officials to talk about how to keep England safe when it visits Pakistan later this year.
The report from the delegation will now be sent to the ECB. After hearing from security officials about how to protect visiting teams in hotels and stadiums, the group decided that the measures were “acceptable.” On Thursday, a group of people in charge of security went to see the NHPC and the Safe City Project.
This group included people from the Pakistan Cricket Board. They also figured out how to get from the stadium to the hotel and back. The top officers from both the Punjab Police and the security forces met with the security team from England. The Safe City security team was told how the project would be set up and how security would work. The English team was also told about how police would handle routes to and from the airport and stadium, hotels, and parking. The delegation was also shown videos of how Pakistan keeps its people safe. At the meeting, people also talked about law enforcement agencies and new tech. The group of four people also went to the NHPC Lahore facility.
