Australian Team Inspect Fatorda Stadium
A team from Australia Tuesday morning inspected the Fatorda stadium where the one day international cricket match between India and Australia is scheduled to be played on 24th October and expressed happiness over the arrangement made for the game.
Earlier, the team comprising of four members, were given an audio-visual presentation on the arrangements made and they were highly impressed with the professional and detailed presentation. Speaking to ‘Goa Chronicle, Steve Bernard, the Australian Team Manager said he was satisfied with the security arrangements as this is a major concern for the visitors.
The team checked all avenues at the Fatorda stadium from the parking arrangements to the stands and even the players room. One member took a round of the ground checking the grass and the pitch.
Speaking to media persons Frank Damasi who is the Security Manager said he had interacted with the Goa Police and also the security in charge of the hotel where the visiting team will be housed and was very satisfied with everything.
Steve was confident that the encounter will be an exciting one and while pointing that the last time when Australia played against India on the same grounds the visitors had won, this time, he conceded, it will not be so easy.
