Dubai: The International Cricket Council (ICC) will clear India’s doubts about security at the upcoming World Cup but the world body is unlikely to even discuss a possible boycott of Pakistan when its Chief Executives Committee (CEC) meets here Wednesday.
More than 40 CRPF personnel were killed in the Pulwama terror attack which led to demands that India should boycott the Pakistan game in the World Cup in Manchester, June 16.
Responding to the outrage, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) wrote a letter to the ICC urging it boycott countries from where terrorism emanates but did not specifically name Pakistan.
The quarterly meeting of the ICC will start in Dubai, Wednesday with the Chief Executives (CEC) meeting where BCCI CEO Rahul Johri’s letter will be tabled and the matter will be discussed.
The BCCI had expressed its concern about the safety of the players and officials during the World Cup which starts May 30 in England.
“The ICC will provide all the details of the security arrangements made for the World Cup. It will be same for all the participating nations and England and Wales Cricket Board have always provided top notch arrangements,” a senior BCCI official privy to the ICC’s functioning told this agency on conditions of anonymity. “But since there has been an apprehension, the doubts will be cleared,” the official added.
