The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Anurag Thakur said on Thursday that it will do everything to make the ICC World T20 2016 'a grand success'.

BCCI said that they will be focusing on all areas including crowd interests and that discussions regarding the eight venues that will be hosting all the matches of the tournament are still on. The Organising Committee will meet on 7 August to discuss about what are the changes that can be made to make this tournament a runaway success.

"Most likely the changes will be regarding how and from where the disabled fans will enter the stadiums, how to make toilets big and clean, measures for firefighting and spectators point of view. We will do a lot," Thakur told the reporters at a press conference on Thursday.

The tournament is set to begin on 11 March 2016 and will go on until 3 April 2016. The big final will be played at the iconic Eden Gardens, which has a capacity of above 65,000. Apart from this venue, there will be seven other venues that will host all the matches. These include Bengaluru, Chennai, Nagpur, Dharamshala, New Delhi, Mumbai and Mohali. 

The qualifiers of ICC World T20 2016 are on and it will decide the fate of two minnows who will get to play with the big nations in the cricket world. Sri Lanka are the defending champions as they had defeated India in the final of the ICC World T20 2014 in Dhaka.
