The security for the next t20 world cup 2024, which will be hosted in the united states and the West Indies, has been reinforced following a threat from terror organisation ISIS-K earlier this year. Notably, the big event has faced security concerns, notably for the high-profile matchup between india and pakistan on june 9 at the Nassau County international Cricket Stadium in New York.
New York governor Kathy Hochul has questioned the legitimacy of the threat, stating that her staff is trying to keep the spectators safe and has increased security measures. “In preparation for the t20 world cup 2024, my team has been working with federal & local law enforcement to keep attendees safe. While there is no credible threat at this time, I’ve directed New York police to elevate security measures & we’ll continue to monitor as the event nears,” wrote Hochul on her X account.

Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman has stated that their team has meticulously researched security and health-care concerns for the tournament's enormous audience. “This is like the Super Bowl on steroids. There will be teams from all over the world coming in. There will be fans from all over the world coming to Nassau County and we have been meeting for well over six months on a regular basis to talk about security concerns and health care concerns, which could potentially arise at any kind of event of this magnitude,” Bruce Blakeman was quoted as saying by CNN.
