New Delhi: Reacting to the pending issue over the venue of Indo-Pak ICC World T20 match, Indian Premier League chairman Rajeev Shukla on Friday said that full security will be provided to players.

According to CNN IBN, Shukla said that the match was as per schedule.

Earlier on Thursday, Board of Cricket for Control in India (BCCI) secretary Anurag Thakur also said that the match was as per schedule as far as the Indian board was concerned.

Thakur met Himachal Pradesh chief minister on Wednesday to discuss the issue.

Singh, who had earlier raised security concerns over the much-awaited encounter between the two rivals, said that Thakur needed to speak to the families of martyrs and ex-servicemen body.

“I told him that the government was fully competent to provide necessary security to the players, but he should go and talk to the families of martyrs and ex-servicemen body. If they have no problem and agree not to oppose the match, the government will not have any issue. Ball is in Anurag Thakur’s court,” he was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.

"Himachal Pradesh government will speak to the people who have raised concerns over the India vs Pakistan match in Dharamshala," Thakur said on Thursday at a press conference.

Earlier, backing Dharamshala as the venue, Thakur said that the schedule and the venues were decided much in advance and the fans across the globe had booked their tickets as well.
