The cricket governing body of India, BCCI today said that they will leave no stone unturned in its attempt to make the World T20 2016 a better event than the previous five World T20 tournaments.
BCCI Secretary Anurag Thakur, while addressing a press conference, said they are focusing on all areas, including spectator’s interest.
The Organising Committee meeting will be held on August 7, when required changes will be discussed in details.
BCCI, the richest cricket governing body in the world, is taking special initiative for the disabled fans for entering the stadium during the World T20 2016. Besides that, BCCI is taking the path of Prime Minster Narendra Modi’s “Swachh Bharat” campaign as they vowed to make the stadium toilets bigger and cleaner than the current ones.
“Discussions are on for the 2016 World T20 at eight venues. The first Organising Committee meeting will be held before August 7 to discuss what new changes are to be brought like how and from where the disabled fans will enter the stadiums, how to make toilets big and clean, measures for firefighting and spectators point of view. We will do a lot,” Thakur said.
On Wednesday, eight cities – Kolkata, Bangalore, Chennai, Dharamsala, Mohali, Mumbai, Nagpur and Delhi – were named as venues for the prestigious event, which will begin on March 11 next year. Kolkata will host the final on April 3.
The BCCI Secretary also emphasised that the young Indian players must work hard on fitness.
“There should be quality, a benchmark and standard for fitness. Once the players are in reckoning (for national side), they must know what the standard is.” Inputs from PTI
