The ECB delegation will now report back to the ECB. The delegation included, ECB’s security advisor Reg Dickason, Professional Cricketers’ Association chief executive David Leatherdale and ECB’s director of cricket operations John Carr.

He added, “There’s no time frame, and we won’t put any pressure. They took everything quite seriously here, and spoke to nearly everyone, including the country’s security intelligence. They were given a detailed security plan at the home ministry.”

England will tour Bangladesh for three ODIs and Two Tests in the month of October if everything goes as as scheduled. The tour will begin from October 7. The England team is scheduled to arrive in Bangladesh on September 30. Following a terror attack in Dhaka on July 1, there has been a doubt over England traveling to Bangladesh.
