Safety and security arrangements for the ICC [Images] Champions Trophy in Pakistan are satisfactory, ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat said on Tuesday.
"As far as the ICC is concerned the safety and security is satisfactory," the head of the cricket's world governing body told a news conference at Lord's in London [Images] on Tuesday.
Asked if next month's event could be moved to Sri Lanka [Images], which is the ICC's alternate venue, Lorgat said: "I think the time has passed".
He was in London with the International Cricket Council's Task Team to brief the England [Images] and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) about arrangements for the Champions Trophy, which is due to be played in Karachi and Lahore [Images] starting from September 12.
