Dickason to arrive today, says Shetty

Chennai: The BCCI’s Chief Administrative Officer Ratnakar Shetty told The Hindu that Reg Dickason, the Chief Security Officer of the ECB, would arrive in India on Wednesday. The England cricket team’s return for the Test series hinges on the report that will be submitted by Mr. Dickason and his team to the English Board.

“The security team will first visit Chennai and then travel to Mohali,” revealed Mr. Shetty. He was hopeful that the two-Test series would not be affected.

K.S. Viswanathan, the secretary of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association, was confident that the first Test would be held in Chennai from December 11. “From our side, all the arrangements would be in place,” he said.

Apart from meeting the cricket officials and inspecting the stadium and the team hotel, Mr. Dickason will hold discussions with senior police and intelligence officials. The ECB is likely to ask for a dedicated commando unit that will guard the cricketers during all times. — Special Correspondent
