The top brass of the Kolkata Police, including city commissioner Surojit Kar Purokayasta, held a meeting with the local organisers Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) during the day to discuss ways and means of preventing any breach of peace.

A four-tier security checking will be in place near the gates from where the spectators enter the ground.

As part of enhancing security, it was decided to deploy more number of police personnel in the galleries and other strategic points to monitor crowd movement.

"We had a meeting with the top brass of Kolkata Police. There will be a lot more police officers on duty in the galleries and near the ground so as to avoid any such occurrences," said CAB treasurer Biswaroop Dey. "It will be a fool-proof security system," Dey added.

On Monday at the Barabati stadium in Cuttack, spectators threw bottles and other missiles on the ground when India were on the verge of losing the contest.

The match was held up twice due to the disturbances and finally the police emptied a part of the gallery so as to resume the tie.

India have already lost the three-match T20 series 0-2.
