If ever there was a player suited for Twenty20 cricket, it's Northern Districts wicketkeeper Peter McGlashan.
A PCB spokesman said here on Wednesday that more security personnel would be deployed during the competition, that would be played here at the National Stadium and three other grounds from December 21 to 26 to make it a faultless tournament, as opposed to its last year’s edition.
“More security personnel including Rangers and police officials would be deployed in the tournament as compared to last year’s event to avoid any mishap,” said the PCB spokesman.
It may be recalled that security lapses and mismanagement marred the final of 2005-06 edition when the match was interrupted for almost two hours due to crowd trouble.
But the PCB spokesman said that arrangements have been done in a successful manner to cope with such situations in the coming event.
The PCB has also done a wise job by making accreditation cards of the just concluded Pakistan-West Indies series applicable for the Twenty20 tournament for the sports journalists who faced difficulties in fulfilling their duty during last season’s edition, when no cards were issued for the sports reporters.
