Level of security enhances for the Indian team in West Indies

Although BCCI has termed the security threat news as ‘hoax’, it is not taking any risk with the team. The team has been provided with additional security following the same.

The back story

Geo Super reported about a threat mail aimed at the Indian Cricket Team received by the Pakistan Cricket Board. PCB informed ICC about the same and later BCCI dismissed all such speculation. A senior BCCI official told PTI later on Sunday, “We have informed the security agencies and it has been found out that it was a hoax email.”
But the board still informed the High Commission in Antigua to ensure the best security for the team. “We informed the High Commission in Antigua and they have in turn informed the local government over there. The security is being monitored and if need be will be beefed up adequately. As of now, they are still getting the same level of security.”

The story

As expected even though the board dismissed threat news, it is not taking any risk. Speaking to IANS, a BCCI functionary informed that the team has been given an additional pilot vehicle to ensure the security is not compromised at all. “It was a hoax and all things are in order. The Indian team has been provided with an additional pilot vehicle and the Indian High Commission informed the Antigua government on the same just as a precautionary measure.”
Indian team winning the ODI and T20 series against West Indies is all set to begin the Test series on Tuesday. The Test will also be the inaugural Test for India’s World Test Championship. The players are currently busy in a warm-up game against West Indies Board President’s XI in Coolidge, Antigua where they look ready for the upcoming Test series. The two-match Test series will be played from August 22 to September 4.
