Cricket Security Update

Fearless and secured, concerned to play only. Pakistan v/s South Africa

South Africans Cricket team keeps focusing on their first test series held in Pakistan without concerning security issues. After the 2009 terrorist attack on the Srilankan team in Pakistan, South African is among the teams that toured in Pakistan. The visitor team is provided with emperor alike protocol. The buses of team members are protected and secured by vans of military force. Quinton de Kock reported on Monday in the southern port city of Karachi that before they got security was obviously a big part, when they arrived and saw the extent of the security, the guys have gotten a lot more comfortable. Furthermore, he said: “It looks like every corner is checked and all bases are covered, touch wood.” He also said that they are feeling pretty safe now they are only focusing on cricket. The test matches are scheduled in Karachi will be followed from 4th February by the second test in Rawalpindi and the third test match from 11th to 14th February in Lahore. Although the Pakistan cricket team had faced the hurdle of being restricted from traveling internationally after a terrorist attack in 2009, Pakistan is pleased to welcome major cricket nations in 2021, as reported in November. South African team is offered by The Pakistan Cricket Board to practice nearest to the hotel for 5 days before they started their training at National Stadium- the ground for the first test match. De Kock supports the decision of not to quarantine the team for 14 days which will be helpful for early preparation. He further said: “Our biggest challenge is the conditions that we could face, the unknowing of the things that we have to deal with.” “When you go to places like Australia, India, you kind of know what you’re  going to get, (but) the unknowing of the things that are going to happen, you think that’s a big part.”
