Led by ICC head of events, Chris Tetley, and BCCI Tournament Director MV Sridhar, a joint team which arrived here last night, reached the stadium in the morning. They carried out an inspection of the venue and held meetings with PCA officials.

"The ICC-BCCI joint team arrived at the venue in the morning to carry out the inspection. They went around the stadium. They appeared to be quite happy with the overall maintenance, facilities and security aspects,” Sridhar added.

"No shortcoming was pointed out. They were happy with overall set up. The only thing which they wanted was that there should be smooth changeover when Mohali hosts a double header of the event," venue manager and PCA's CEO, Brigadier G S Sandhu (retd) told reporters.

Among the matches which Mohali will host are Pakistan taking on Australia on March 25 and the double-header on March 27 between West Indies and India (women) and India vs Australia (men).

Sandhu said the team held a detailed meeting with security officials, "Which was headed by IGP, Kuldeep Singh. The security team reviewed everything, they were quite happy."
