Tight security arrangements have been made to ensure no untoward incident take place during the first one-day international between India and New Zealand to be played at Nehru Stadium here on November 28.
Assam Cricket Association secretary Bikash Barua told reporters here that the planning for security cover in and around the stadium has been completed.
"Apart from Assam police personnel, we are also arranging for private security. Close circuit cameras will be installed in various places, including all gates of the stadium to ensure close monitoring to avoid any untoward incident," Barua said.
The ACA, which is hosting the match, has already set up various sub-committees and responsibilities have been delegated to the respective sub-committees.
