Lahore: Pakistan Cricket Board would make a presentation to the International Cricket Council and its member Boards soon on the measures taken by the authorities since the 2009 attack on the Sri Lankan team in a bid to impress on the other countries that security situation has improved in the country.

A reliable source in the Board said that the PCB had hired an Army colonel who was with the Inter Services Intelligence and is a counter terrorism expert to prepare the security brief for the ICC and its member Boards.

"Colonel Azam is now working with the PCB vigilance and security wing as the Board has come to the conclusion that until the ICC and its member Boards are not made aware and are satisfied with security plans for domestic and international cricket in Pakistan, international teams or players will never come to Pakistan," the source said.
