The company has been given the responsibility to prepare the ground and wickets. The BCCI official seemed not satisfied with the pitch preparation and asked for a test report which has to be verified.

Venkat Sundaram also suggested that the organisers prepare an aerial walk from the practice arena to the players pavilion in order to avoid chaos during international matches. The BCCI official asked the ground preparing agency to use purified water so that ground water does not destroy the grass.

He said before staging international matches, sufficient numbers of local, State level and national level matches have to be organised on the main wickets. The BCCI official asked the ACA to prepare atleast nine wickets in the main ground. According to him a ground should be made ready outside the stadium in order to have practice matches.
