Hyderabad: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Cricket Australia officials on Monday reviewed the security arrangements here and met the city’s police commissioner ahead of the second Test between India and Australia, scheduled to be held from March 2-5.
Security has been beefed up in the wake of last Thursday’s terror attacks in the city, which has been rocked by serial blasts. Senior Board officials along with the security head of Cricket Australia assessed the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, though Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) secretary MV Sridhar called it a routine affair.
Senior Board official Ratnakar Shetty came from Mumbai for the meeting. The HCA official said state chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy “assured them of full security”.
