According to the reports, The 3rd ODI of the series between England and New Zealand looks set to go ahead in Leicester despite a massive security threat made against the New Zealand team.
As per details, A member of the New Zealand team management was contacted and told that a bomb would be placed at the team hotel.
The reports further added that the team management was also warned of an attempt to place a bomb on their plane when they return to New Zealand.
The team went into lockdown on Monday due to the threat, while training was also cancelled and the police and counter-terrorism agencies were called in.
It further added that some of the players are still understood to be apprehensive, however, so it remains possible the game could be called off.
The latest development in England has raised some serious questions as to why this threat in Leicester was not deemed credible but the one in Pakistan was.
It is pertinent to mention here that England and New Zealand have both called off tours to Pakistan in recent days, with NZC citing a specific “security threat”, and the ECB conceding that “concerns about travelling to the region” were a factor in their withdrawal on player welfare grounds.
