Ghaziabad:BCCI finance committee chairman Rajiv Shukla has allayed the security fears of foreign cricketers participating in the Indian Premier League starting next month, saying all necessary arrangements would be made to ensure an incident-free IPL.

"Adequate security will be provided to all the foreign players in the forthcoming IPL and no threat by Thackeray or any other will be tolerated," Shukla said.
Talking to reporters at the residence of Congress leader and former MLA Surender Kumar Munni, Shukla said, "It is the government who will arrange intensive security for the players during the IPL.
