The Andhra Cricket Association (ACA) thanked to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for allotting two crucial playoff matches in Vivo IPL 2019 on May 8 and 9 to be hosted at Vizag stadium.
Thos stadium is already geared up to conduct all the formats of International cricket matches and also geared up to host the two matches with short notice thereby gaining the confidence of the BCCI officials, said Ch Arun Kumar, General Secretary, ACA on Tuesday.
During 2016, when the High Court of Maharashtra did not permit to hold six matches in Maharashtra, the ACA has conducted all the six matches with a short notice of 15 days. Similarly, during last year when Indore could not host the ODI between India and West Indies, the ACA took up the responsibility and hosted the match successfully in Visakhapatnam, Kumar recalled.
Keeping in view of the earlier IPL officials visit to Visakhapatnam stadium, all necessary arrangements are being made and are in progress. Ground is in excellent condition, all galleries are decorated by BCCI, advanced telecast equipment was already installed in the stadium to meet the telecast requirements, Kumar added. #KhabarLive
