32 bouncers to man galleries
Thirty two bouncers will man the spectators' galleries during the second ODI between India and South Africa in Gwalior.
"All these bouncers over 6-foot tall will be hired from Delhi to keep an eye on this day and night match," Madhya Pradesh Additional Chief Secretary and Gwalior Division Cricket Association (GDCA) Working president Prashant Mehta and GDCA Secretary Ravi Patankar told reporters.

They said these bouncers will keep a hawk's eye on the trouble-makers during the match to be held on February 24.

"Tight security arrangements were being made at the stadium having a seating capacity of 24,404 people," Mehta said adding that system will be put in place to ensure that only genuine spectators with valid tickets get into the stadium.

"Each ticket will bear the signature of the Additional District Magistrate (ADM)," he added.

Patankar said that a gallery with special mattress and cushion having a seating capacity of 1,250 spectators will come up in the stadium.

He also added that the sale of tickets for the one dayer will fetch Rs 2 crore.

The Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA), which was working closely with GDCA, has been asked to organise the match. So far, 11 one day internationals have been played in Captain Roop Singh Stadium.
