Cuttack, Jan 9:

MV Sridhar, General Manager of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) visited the Barabati stadium in Cuttack today ahead of the One-Day International (ODI) cricket match between India and England scheduled to be held at the venue on January 19.


Taking stock of the match preparations, Sridhar discussed with the curator regarding the condition of the pitch.

Cuttack DCP Sanjeev Arora also inspected security arrangements at the stadium today.

“Any item which can be thrown as a missile like apples, oranges, water pouches and bottles will not be allowed inside the stadium,” said Arora.

Notably, this time the OCA is trying its best leaving no stone unturned for smooth conduct of the upcoming ODI following the infamous bottle pelting incident during India-South Africa T20 match on October 5 in 2015 which had drawn flak from various quarters.
