KARACHI The Asian Cricket Council has declared adequate security arrangements are in place in Pakistan for next month's Asia Cup cricket tournament, an official said on Monday.
The ninth edition of the Asia Cup will be held in Pakistan from June 24 to July 6, for which security arrangements were discussed at an ACC meeting held in Colombo on Sunday.
"Everything is in order and we are satisfied with the security arrangements made by Pakistan. We hope that the event will be held in a befitting manner," ACC chief executive Ashraful Huq said.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials made a presentation on the tournament, which will feature India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangla-desh, Hong Kong and the UAE.
Security has been top of the agenda for international teams touring Pakistan in recent years.
Australia put off their March-April 2008 tour to the country over security fears amid a series of suicide bombings.
