Giving the reasons for such prohibition, ACA stated that the recent protests regarding the Citizen Amendment Act in the state of Assam provoked the alert in order to prevent any unruly behavior on part of the spectators who reportedly threw stones inside the ground during the Australia match in 2017.

“Everybody is concerned, not just the people of Assam. This is an international event and will have heightened security measures,” said Devajit Saikia, Secretary of Assam Cricket Association.

“We have to be prepared. Whatever security protocol we have to follow, we are,”

said Saikia. “Nothing more, nothing less.

“No situation arose where the ACA or the BCCI were skeptical about holding this match. Following a timeline we have prepared for this for a month. That is why we are so relaxed,” said Saikia.

BCCI representative Mamon Majumdar asked spectators to “behave very nicely because people from outside, other states will watch us and say spectators are very well behaved.”

A full house crowd of around 39,400 is expected to witness the match proceeding.
