34 cameras to keep tight vigil during Nagpur ODI

Nagpur, Oct 2 (UNI) As many as 34 closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras will keep a watch on crowd behaviour during the sixth India-Australia one-day international (ODI) match, to be played at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) stadium, here on October 14.

Speaking to newsmen here today, VCA vice president Sudhir Dabir said the cameras would also keep a watch on the entry gates at the stadium. This would be the first time in Nagpur that the gates would be closely monitored.

Volunteers from an engineering college at Shegaon in Buldhana district would assist the police to maintain law and order during the game, he said.

Both the teams would arrive in Nagpur on October 12. The umpires for the game would be Aleem Dar (Pakistan) and A M Saheba (India), with the third umpire being S L Shastri (India) and the fourth umpire R Radhakrishnan, Mr Dabir said, adding that Chris Board would be the ICC match referee and Chetan Desai from Goa the match observer.

In 2004, Australia had last played a test match here and a World Cup ODI game against Sri Lanka in March 1996, he added.
