Modi said the stadia hosting the matches would undergo massive
upgradation to improve public amenities.
"We met the associations' representatives and told them the
infrastructure needs in the stadia and what help they can expect from
us. There will be massive upgradation in all the staging venues in terms
of facilties such as public toilets and seating arrangements," he told
"We will be spending crores of rupees in this regard and will also be
placing the franchisees' needs before the staging associations.
As long as people were blindly flocking to the stadium to support their
"national" team, bcci never had to bother about facilities for
spectators. But now that they need to attract customers, they are making
sure that spectators can spend an evening comfortably.
