Security beefed up at Kotla for Dhoni's Hazare semi-final

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

The security for Singh led Jharkhand's semi-final against Bengal has been beefed up after the match got shifted to the Feroz Shah Kotla ground from the Model Sports Complex in Palam.

The match that was scheduled to be held today was postponed after fire broke out at a five-star facility in Dwarka where the team was put up.



"We have had discussions with the police authorities and we are expecting a crowd turnout of around 3000 people. The entry is free as it is the case of domestic games. playing a domestic game always makes it more special. Also Kotla being an eclosed stadium means that possibility of crowd trouble is next to nil unlike some of the other grounds," DDCA official ravinder Manchanda told PTI.

However there is some bad for all those who would have loved to watch on television. The match is not going to be aired live as host broadcasters Star Sports were supposed to show one semi-final and a final.

Since today's match was scheduled at Palam and was not supposed to be aired live, the schedule doesn't change for the broadcasters.
