ECB to re-assess Twenty20 security


The Lahore terror attacks have set the alarm bells ringing for the ECB which will see them take a fresh look at the security arrangements for the World Cup.

Twenty20 World Cup Organising Director Steve Elworthy says the Lahore attack, that left six Lankan cricketers injured, has caused a lot of concern for the event that is scheduled this June.

"Definitely, the Lahore terror attack has forced us to relook our plan. Just after the attack, we had a meeting and we are meeting again next week where some top security experts will also participate," Elworthy told 'PTI Bhasha' from London.

Elworthy said a two-level security system to protect match venues and players will be put in place. Participating teams' outdoor activities may also be curtailed during the event as part of the security plan.

"The Lahore attack has proved that terrorists can strike anywhere anytime and this is worrying. We have to be on our guard as London has been a terror target in the past. We might have to keep a tab on the players' outdoor activities during the tournament," he said.
