BCB not concerned about media speculation
Bangladesh Cricket Board did not comment and is willing to wait until the England and Wales Cricket Board releases the official report regarding its upcoming tour of Bangladesh. BCB's reaction came hot on the heels of a report by English daily The Telegraph on Monday in which ECB's chief security officer, Reg Dickason, apparently expressed concern about the team's journeys from the airport to the team hotel, and from the team hotel to the grounds in Bangladesh. “We are not willing to comment on any news from the media as we are waiting for the official report from the ECB,” chairman of the BCB's media and communications committee Jalal Younus told Dhaka Tribune. Dickason was part of the three-member ECB delegation that inspected the security arrangements in Bangladesh ahead of their forthcoming tour where England are scheduled to play two Tests and three ODIs. With that said, there were no official quotes from Dickason on the report as it also said, “It is understood that Dickason’s chief concern is not so much the hotels where England will be staying in Dhaka and Chittagong, or the grounds in those two cities, as they can be cordoned off by the police and military. “The most potentially dangerous parts of a cricket tour are the journeys from the airport to the team hotel, and from the team hotel to the ground, especially in crowded Asian cities where it is humanly impossible to secure all the buildings overlooking the roads. “Another consideration is not simply the safety of the players, or the media, who could be bussed around in the same convoy as the England team, but travelling supporters staying in cheaper hotels and far more exposed.”
