Cricket news - ICC assures BCCI of robust security measures at World Cup

"As you would expect for a global sporting event, the ICC, in partnership with the ECB has a robust security plan in place for the Men's Cricket World Cup."

The International Cricket Council, at the conclusion of the ICC Board meeting in Dubai on Saturday (March 2), assured the Board of Control of Cricket in India that robust security will be put in place for the World Cup in England later this year. The Indian board had raised concerns about the safety and security of players and match officials participating in mega-event as tension between India and Pakistan rose.

"As you would expect for a global sporting event, the ICC, in partnership with the ECB has a robust security plan in place for the Men's Cricket World Cup. We work closely with the authorities in our host countries to ensure that the safety of players, officials and fans is a priority," ICC CEO David Richardson said. "Should those authorities raise the threat level of the event based on intelligence, we will of course uplift our security commitment as appropriate. We will continue to work with the ECB and our Members throughout the build-up to and during the tournament to keep everyone abreast of the situation."

Among other decisions made during the ICC Board Meeting, the governing body decided to have a new composition of the Women's Committee. While Clare Connor was confirmed as the chair of the committee, it was also announced that two Full Member representatives, one Associate Member representative, two CEC representatives, one Independent representative, one media representative, two elected player representatives and one ODI coach representative will form the committee. Anil Kumble was also reappointed as Chairman of the ICC Cricket Committee.

It was also announced that the United Arab Emirates and Scotland will host the ICC Men's and Women's T20 WC Qualifier events later this year. The Women's Qualifier will be in Scotland from September 7 while the men's event will be played in UAE from October 11 with the final on November 3.
