Addressing a media gathering earlier, president of the Assam Cricket Association Taranga Gogoi stated that the Association has roped in an NGO to ensure that there is no presence of snakes any other unwanted elements in the field, as was the case in the T20 match between India and South Africa in October last year, which was also halted by a partial power outage.
