The three-member England and Wales Cricket Board delegation will reach Dhaka on Wednesday.
The ECB’s security advisor Reg Dickason, Professional Cricketers’ Association chief executive David Leatherdale and ECB director of cricket operations John Carr are in the team which is currently inspecting venues in India.
“As per their routine activity before every series, a three-member ECB security team will arrive in Dhaka on Wednesday. They will inspect the security measures of Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur and the Chittagong venues,” said BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury on Tuesday.
“The ECB security team will also hold meeting with the US, Australia and British High commissions along with the home ministry of Bangladesh,” he added.
England are scheduled to reach Bangladesh on September 30 to play three ODIs and two Tests in Dhaka and Chittagong. But there is some uncertainty after ECB showed concerns over security following the terrorist attack in Dhaka on July 1.
The BCB has taken quite a few notable security measures including increased security personnel, installation of many CCTV cameras around the venue and stringent checks to anyone entering the BCB headquarters while the foreign employees are also provided personal security.
Earlier last year Cricket Australia postponed its scheduled tour of Bangladesh over security concerns while months later, Cricket South Africa also postponed its women’s team tour of Bangladesh citing the same reason.
While Australia pulled out from the 2016 Under-19 World Cup in January this year however England, Scotland, Ireland and New Zealand participated.
