Unveiling the ICC’s Response to the Terror Threat for India vs Pakistan T20 World Cup Game

The 9th of June marks one of the highly anticipated clashes of the upcoming T-20 World Cup when India will take on Pakistan. However, with not many days left until the sides step onto the field to take on one another, a terror threat has already taken the cricket fans and pundits by surprise. 

As a matter of security, the International Cricket Council (ICC) is trying to take all the necessary steps and precautions in order to ensure the smooth conduct of the cricket match.

The ICC has already stated that security cover will be raised at New York’s Eisenhower Park stadium following reports of threats to the match. 

As per the statement from the governor’s office, it is being said, “At this moment, there is no plausible threat to public safety.” Eight ICC T20 World Cup matches, including a match between two Asian bitter rivals, will be held at Eisenhower Park Stadium, which is situated 25 miles east of Manhattan, from June 3 to June 12. To ensure that these events run properly, New York Governor Kathy Hochul stated that she is coordinating with police enforcement.

The statement further adds, “I have also directed the New York State Police to engage in elevated security measures, including an increased law enforcement presence, advanced surveillance, and thorough screening processes.”
As per the reports, there has been no conclusive evidence that has been found; however, the ICC has ensured that security will be their top priority heading into the tournament.
Team India will be playing their group stage games in the USA starting on June 5 against Ireland, followed by their match against Pakistan on June 9. The Men in Blue will be taking on the USA on June 12 with their final game, which is against Canada, set to be played on June 15.
