Cricket Australia satisfied with security arrangements in Bangladesh
Cricket Australia will rely on the same security arrangements provided for England's tour last October when it travels to Bangladesh to play two Test matches later this year. The CA anti-corruption and security unit manager Sean Carroll is on a routine two-day tour to Bangladesh and held a series of meetings on Tuesday with the Ministry of Home Affairs, Australian High Commission and the Inspector General of Bangladesh Police. Bangladesh Cricket Board CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury said Carroll is "more than satisfied" with the security arrangements already in place for a tour which was originally scheduled for 2015, but was postponed over security concerns just 48 hours before the team was due to leave for Dhaka. Inspector General of Bangladesh Police, AKM Shahidul Haque, has assured the Australians of fool-proof security. Carroll however, has not asked for anything more than the security arrangements given to England. “We are working together with the BCB to ensure that the series takes place," Carroll, a former police detective, told the media on Tuesday. "I am happy with the arrangements that were in place for England.” Nizamuddin, who was also part of the meetings, said the plan could be "beefed up" if needed. "At the moment they (CA) are more than happy with what we have in place. The CA delegate is here to ensure the arrangements,” he said. Carroll is likely to visit the venue for the first Test, Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, on Wednesday. He is also set to meet the high-ups of the Detective Branch and Rapid Action Battalion on the same day. Carroll is scheduled to leave Dhaka on Thursday. Nizamuddin stated that Carroll, along with other CA representatives, will visit Bangladesh again in July to inspect the facilities. The tour schedule will be finalised soon, said the BCB high-up. If everything falls into place, the first Test will be played before the Eid-ul-Adha holidays, from September 1-5. The second Test, slated for Chittagong, will be held following the holidays.
