The England and Wales Cricket Board yesterday confirmed they are satisfied with security for England's tour of Zimbabwe.

An ECB safety inspection team reported its findings of a five-day visit earlier this week.

The team visited both Harare and Bulawayo - venues of the five one-day internationals - and was assured by the British Embassy, local government officials, police and members of the Zimbabwe Cricket Union that neither players, fans nor journalists would be under threat.

The ECB chairman, David Morgan, said: "We have satisfied ourselves that appropriate safety and security measures will be in place to protect the England touring party and officials."
