Melbourne: Tim May, chief executive of the Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations, has written to IPL organisers expressing his concern over the event and demanding involvement of player representatives in security assessment in the wake of the Lahore terror attack.
“We have written to the Indian Premier League on behalf of our members requesting an ability for player representatives to be involved in the evaluation and construction of security for the event,” May said today.
He added that a number of players have expressed concern over travelling to India for the IPL and would like an independent security assessment prior to the tournament.
“An increasing number of players have expressed a desire for an independent level of comfort surrounding security arrangements for this event,” he was quoted as saying by ‘Super Sport´.
May said he has had a meeting with ICC officials last week wherein he had raised a number of security concerns following a survey conducted into player safety.
