On Tuesday, Sean Carroll had a meeting with Ministry of Home Affairs of Bangladesh, Australian High Commission and the Inspector General of Bangladesh Police.
Inspector General of Bangladesh Police AKM Shahidul Haque has assured about ‘full – proof’ security to Australian cricketers, like the one given earlier to England national cricket team. However, Sean Carroll did not ask for more than that.
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said, “I assured him that we will give your team what level of security you will seek from us. We want the world to see the cricket playing between Bangladesh and Australia.
Later Carroll said, “We are working with the BCB to ensure that the series takes place. I am happy with the arrangement that were in place for England.”
Australia is expected to tour Bangladesh later this year in August – September to play a series of two Test matches.
On Wednesday, Carroll visited Sher – E – Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka and attended meetings with top level officers of Detective Branch, Rapid Action Battalion in Dhaka.
CA representatives are supposed to make a second round visit in Dhaka in July this year. Any positive outcome from the inspection will lead the bilateral series to start tentatively from 1st of September, 2017, before the Eid – Ul – Adha holidays.
