The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) has identified Coimbatore as an ideal centre for holding one-day internationals outside Chennai in view of the past experience of ODIs held in Chennai having been abandoned due to heavy rains during the North-East monsoon. A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of the District Secretaries Forum of the TNCA held under the Presidentship of N. Srinivasan. K.S. Viswanathan, Assistant Secretary of the TNCA told The Hindu that the future tour programmes of the International Cricket Conference (ICC) included Test or ODIs in Chennai during the period from October to December when the North-East monsoon was active in this part of India. Mr. Viswanathan said that the TNCA would build in Coimbatore a stadium, which would have facilities for spectators, players and the media persons. A press box would be provided. The Coimbatore District Cricket Association (CDCA), which has a 7.5 acre-land, is willing to lend it to the TNCA to construct the stadium. The meeting also discussed the need for construction of stadiums and improvement of the grounds in the districts. Grounds have been identified for improvement in Tiruchi and Theni.
