Ind-SL T20I will be a general rehearsal for the Rajasthan IPL games here: ACA bosses

Guwahati, January 3 () The Cricket Assam Association will use the T20I India-Sri Lanka on Sunday as a curtain lift, before organizing two home games for the Rajasthan Royals this season.

Rajasthan Royals, who has hired local boy Riyan Parag for next season, has already confirmed that they will play at least two of their home games at Barsapara Stadium, becoming the first place in the northeast region that hosts an IPL accessory since The beginning of the league in 2008.

So, ACA wants to create an atmosphere similar to IPL for the international event on Sunday.

We will not leave stone without moving for it to succeed. We will have DJs and there will be fireworks that will make it a vibrant night. People will really enjoy the game, said ACA secretary Devajit Saikia.

The situation in the region had also returned to normal after widespread protests against the Citizenship Amendment Bill, as curfew was imposed for more than a week in December.

But the situation is completely normal now and we don't need additional security forces. We are providing general security coverage like the one provided for any other international party in Guwahati. The state government is providing complete security measures regarding traffic movements and crowd management, he said. So far, the ACA Stadium in Barsapara has hosted two international matches: first a T20I in 2017 when India lost to Australia and the last one was an ODI with the local team chasing the more than 300 more than 43 West Indies.
