The cricket teams of India and Australia arrived in Hyderbad amid tight security today for the second Test to be played from March 2.
The teams would start their practice from Thursday.
India won the opening Test in Chennai by eight wickets with skipper MS Dhoni scoring a historic 224.
Meanwhile, tight security arrangements are being put in place in the wake of the twin bomb blasts that rocked Hyderabad last week.
A team of officials from the BCCI and Cricket Australia has visited the stadium this week to look at the arrangements, particularly security.
