It may be recalled here that the International Cricket Council (ICC) and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) had earlier reassured the cricketing community that a robust safety and security plan will be ensured after the Manchester Blast.
In the statement released the ICC wrote, “We operate on advice from our Tournament Security Directorate — in conjunction with the ECB and relevant authorities — to ensure that we have a robust safety and security plan for both tournaments.”
“We will continue to work with authorities over the coming hours and days and review our security in line with the threat levels,” the ICC stated.
“The security situation has been very much front and centre of our preparations and we constantly review our procedures to guarantee they are as effective as possible to keep everyone safe,” it added.
“We do not disclose our security details as a matter of policy,” the ICC further added.
