The Manchester blast which claimed the life of 19 and injured 50 people shook the city ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy slated next month. With few days to go for the event, citing security reasons BCCI has promptly arranged an emergency meet, where we believe the schedule will be discussed again. This is a good move as the security of players are the prime concern of BCCI.
Earlier the jaw-dropping attack took place during a concert of singer Ariana Grande. The concert was taking place in Manchester, England on Monday late night. Great Manchester Police department were quick to confirm that as many as 19 people were killed in the explosion and close to 50 people were severely injured in the attack that took place at the iconic Manchester Arena. Manchester is a growing territory and this is as of now called as a ‘terror attack’ by a suicide bomber. It is also learnt that the bomber was clever enough to show patience and not enter the auditorium as chances of getting caught was high. The bomber held the ground and then struck to leave the entire land of United Kingdom shell-shocked.
It is learnt that BCCI will monitor the practice sessions, traveling, and also the team hotels in the meeting. Team India is expected to play two warm-up matches before the tournament proper that commences on June 1. The first warm-up match will be played against New Zealand on May 28 and the second one will be played on May 30 against Bangladesh.
