Police will use latest gadgets, including night vision devices to monitor crowd as tight security arrangements were made the ODI in Nagpur.

The day-night match between India and Australia will be played in the city on October 28.

Adequate police personnel will be deployed in and around the venue equipped with hands free walkie talkie, door frame metal detectors, hand held metal detector, under vehicle mirror and night vision devices to ensure a trouble-free event, Inspector General (Nagpur Range) Surinder Kumar and Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) President Sudhir Dabir told reporters here today.

The match will be held at VCA's new stadium at Jamtha, about 25 kilometre from the city and will be the first day-night encounter at the new stadium.

Kumar said that about 1,000 personnel, three SP level officers, eight Deputy SPs, 22 Inspectors, 84 Sub-Inspectors, 150 women staff and 80 traffic staffers will be deployed along with a company of State Reserve Police Force (SRPF).

Both teams will be provided foolproof security from the hotel to the stadium and back, Dabir said.
