Kochi: The BCCI curator Kasturirangan on Sunday expressed satisfaction over the arrangements at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium (JNS), the venue for the third One-day International between India and Zimbabwe on March 13. Speaking to reporters after visiting the stadium, he said the pitch looked very good, capable of enabling teams to score 270 plus runs. "The outfield is also fine.

It will be a run getting pitch," he said. Meanwhile, the organisers said a fully equipped medical room would be set up at the stadium, as in previous years. Being set up by the department of Sports Medicine and Medical Trust Hospital, it would have routine physiotherapy areas and an exercise room.

An expert team, including sports medicine specialist Dr Jose Thomas Pappanacherry, Dr V M Khalel and Dr R R Ravi (Neuro-surgeon), along with trained nurses, experienced physiotherapists, trauma technicians and other paramedicals would be in charge of the medical room, they said. Elaborate security arrangements would be made for the match. Spectators would not be allowed to carry papers, plastic bottles, matchboxes, cigarettes, lighters and transistors into the stadium, he said.
