Kolkata police face security issues for PAK vs ENG ODI World Cup game

Men's ODI world cup

As the ICC ODI World Cup is inching closer and closer each day, fans, stadiums, and security personnel are taking quick actions to maintain security during the mega event.

But, a recent development has taken place in Kolkata for the security of the Pakistan vs England game.

Apparently, the Kolkata Police has contacted the Cricket Association of Bengal over security issues.

We all know that the security of players and fans is very crucial in a mega event like the ODI World Cup.

Pakistan is raising security concerns about playing in India and is still uncertain about its participation.

Meanwhile, another development has come to light that Pakistan’s Foreign Minister, Bilawal Bhutto is in talks with a committee that is made by the Pakistani PM and is discussing the participation issue along with seeking security clearance in India.

The India-Pakistan match is already seeing a change of date from the 15th to the 14th of October.

Furthermore, the Pakistan-Netherlands game could also see a change in date.

Additionally, BCCI Secretary, Jay Shah has already stated that only the dates will change and not the venues.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan-Sri Lanka game could also see a date change. This means that around 4-5 or maybe six games could see changes in dates.

BCCI and ICC to reveal the changed schedule very soon

Apparently, the BCCI and ICC are still working on changing the dates for the marquee event.

Therefore, sources have stated that the revised schedule will be revealed in the upcoming week itself.

Moreover, the start of ticket sales could also happen this week as Paytm Insider is ready to get licensed.

So, it will be worth noting as to what will be the reaction of the CAB on the security issue and how the PCB reacts to it as well.

Furthermore, with the mega event inching closer day by day, all the authorities are working efficiently and diligently.

If everything falls in place for the marquee event, it will surely be a memorable one for fans and players.
