With a couple of days left for the second Test to begin, the teams are expected to start practising from Thursday.

Having won the first Test by 8 wickets, India have an upper hand going into the second Test while Australians would look forward to put up a better show at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in the Test beginning this Saturday.

Security has been beefed up at the venue especially after the twin blasts that rocked the city last week.

It can be recalled that the officials of both the boards BCCI and Cricket Australia had visited the venue earlier this week to check the security arrangements ahead of the second Test.

Talking about the security arrangements at the venue, Hyderabad Cricket Association secretary said "It's a big challenge for us in the wake of Dilsukhnagar bomb blasts. We have been having a series of discussions with the security officials concerned. We are optimistic of conducting the Test successfully."
