Champions Trophy: BCCI raises team security concerns with ICC


The Board of Control for Cricket in India has raised concerns about the Indian team’s security in England during the upcoming Champions Trophy with the International Cricket Council.

Acting secretary of BCCI Amitabh Chaudhry said today that the Board sent out a message raising concerns about security of the Indian team’s travel, accommodation and the playing arena.

He said, ICC has responded to it within two hours and the team’s schedule remains unchanged so far.

ICC Champions Trophy commences on June 1 and India’s first game is on June 4 against arch-rivals Pakistan. The squad led by Virat Kohli is set to depart for England tomorrow.

Acting BCCI president, C K Khanna, said that the BCCI is in close touch with the ICC and the consultant of its Anti Corruption Unit, former Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar, will be leaving for the UK tonight. Mr.Kumar, incidentally, was the head of security when the ICC World T20 Championship was hosted by India last year.
