DCP Mundhe urged fans to arrive early at the stadium on Wednesday, citing enhanced security protocols that may cause delays. The gates will open at 11:30 AM ahead of the 2 PM match start time. Prohibited items inside the stadium include bags, tobacco products, coins, paper, pencils, pens, power banks, water bottles, and objectionable banners. Only mobile phones, wristwatches, and wallets will be allowed.

Cricket enthusiasts are advised to purchase tickets only from official websites and to pay the amount specified on the ticket. Mumbai Police remain vigilant to curb any illegal activities and ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all attendees.
