New York steps up security before of India vs. Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2024

In reaction to concerns about a threat to the high-stakes India-Pakistan match at the T20 World Cup 2024 in New York, security is being stepped up to protect public safety. But the governor’s office said in a statement that “there is no credible public safety threat at this time.”

On June 9, the highly anticipated India vs. Pakistan match will take place at Eisenhower Park Stadium. This location, which is around 25 miles east of Manhattan, will hold eight games between June 3 and June 12. The governor of the state of New York, Kathy Hochul, said that her government has been in communication with law enforcement for a number of months in order to guarantee that the matches go forward without any problems.

“I’ve also given the New York State Police orders to implement stricter screening procedures, more law enforcement officers, and sophisticated monitoring. “My primary concern is public safety, and we are dedicated to making the Cricket World Cup a fun and safe event,” the speaker said.

ESPNcricinfo reports that the police have not yet discovered any solid proof to back up the threat that has been claimed. Nevertheless, the ICC said that “robust” security will be in place during the major event, including at the location in New York.

“Our first goal is ensuring everyone’s safety and security throughout the event, and we have a thorough and effective security strategy in place. In order to make sure that the necessary preparations are in place to reduce any threats detected to our event, we constantly monitor and assess the global landscape in close collaboration with the authorities in our host nations, according to a spokeswoman for the ICC.

The Cricket West Indies and the International Cricket Council (ICC), who are co-hosting the next World Cup with the United States of America, stated earlier this month that all necessary precautions are being taken to guarantee the safety of both players and spectators.

The Men in Blue have four games in New York: on June 5, they face Canada; on June 12, they play the much-awaited match versus Pakistan; and on June 5, they play the USA. On June 1, they are scheduled to play a warm-up match against Bangladesh. After being given a little vacation, the legendary Virat Kohli is yet to join the Indian team, but the other players have gathered in the US and begun preparing for the 20-team tournament.
