Chappell: ICC need to set up a security committee

Australia

Following Australia's decision to cancel their Test tour to Bangladesh because of security fears, Ian Chappell thinks the ICC should get involved and manage security efforts.

Cricket Australia called off the tour to the Asian country after their government said there is 'terror alert against Australians'.

Chappell, who is a former Australia captain, feels cricket's governing body should have a committee that deals with security issues.

Speaking on Cricinfo, Chappell said: "The ICC and the cricket boards need to set up a committee, which has a security background.

"It's got to get information from all the countries and relevant parties but by doing that you are taking it out of the hands of the individual boards, who look at different situations differently.

"I guess it's very hard to ignore government advice on matters of security."
