LAHORE, Pakistan: The Lahore Police has hatched out a foolproof security plan to ensure the peaceful occurrence of three-match T20 Series between Pakistan and Bangladesh kicking off on Friday.

The online and offline booking of Pakistan vs Bangladesh T20 Series 2020 has already begun, and long queues can be seen outside the TCS Express Centres in Lahore for buying tickets.
The DIG Operations Lahore Rai Babar Saeed said that more than 10,000 police personal including 17 Superintendents of Police (SPs), 48 Deputy Superintendents of Police (DSPs), 134 Inspectors, and 592 Upper Sub-Ordinates will be deployed in and around the Gaddafi Stadium to ensure that no untoward incident takes place.
Rai Babar Saeed said that army and rangers personnel will also be on standby as a backup force.

Lahore Traffic Plan for Pakistan vs Bangladesh T20 Series 2020
Separately, the Metro Bus Service Route will also remain limited.
In addition to that, since all roads adjoining the Gaddafi Stadium will be blocked for the traffic during the movement of both teams, the City Traffic Police has also chalked out alternate route plans for the City’s motorists.
