Pune: There were 23 dogs on guard at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune during the first Twenty20 between Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led India and Sri Lanka on Tuesday.

It was only the third time that an international match was organised at this venue and Mumbai-based firm Third Eye Dog Security was in-charge of the security for the smooth conduct of the event.

“They do it in Germany for football matches. Our dogs are highly trained in Thane and Pune for three to 12 months. There was not a single untoward incident at the game. The security had to be foolproof to stop spectators entering the ground,” Nawal added.

“During one of the IPL matches, a few spectators tried to enter the ground when Preity Zinta was distributing some souvenirs and we had to protect her,” said Nawal.
