Hyderabad: The fourth One-day International match between India and Zimbabwe would be held here on March 16 amidst unprecedented security arrangements in wake of the March 15 Pooja call at Ayodhya given by VHP.Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) president G P Surana told reporters on Tuesday that they had a few rounds of talks with top brace of police and discussed the security arrangements in wake of the fluid situation in Ayodhya on March 15. "We are leaving nothing to chance and sufficient police force would be deployed and spectators would be frisked before allowing them inside," he said.

HCA has also brought down the capacity to 21,000 from 25,000 in wake of the security and earlier allegations that more number of tickets were printed then the actual capacity. The teams that would be arriving on March 14 are scheduled to go to nets the next day and would be practising under flood lights, Surana said adding that the venue Lal Bahadur Stadium is being decked up to the specifications of the cricket Board.
