Hyderabad:Former United Board of South African Cricket (UCBSA) official Ali Bacher today visited the newly-built Visakha Stadium at Uppal on the city outskirts.

However, Bacher, who was director of the 2003 World Cup organising committee held in South Africa, said that he was on a private visit and it has nothing to do with the ensuingSouth Africa tour of India.

"I'm here basically to promote electronic display boards manufactured by Stella Vista, the company I work for and I'm going round the cricket stadia showing the equipment," he said.

The display equipment was a great sucess during the 2003 World Cup and is in great demand, Bacher, accompanied by company CEO Muris Tabakovic, said.

When asked if he was missing cricket, Bacher said, "No I am enjoying what I'm doing".

Bacher also visited the cricket stadium at Visakhapatnam yesterday.
