About a thousand fans gathered at the airport to catch the arrival of the two teams as the city prepares itself for its first international match after a gap of seven years. <p></p> <p></p>From their 2011 World Cup win to a new era under <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/virat-kohli" target="_blank">Virat Kohli</a>, much has changed since Guwahati hosted its last international match way back on November 28, 2010 when India beat New Zealand by 40 runs in an ODI. <p></p> <p></p>The Assam Cricket Association (ACA) also has moved from the Nehru Stadium and 37,000-capacity Barsapara stadium now has become the new cricketing destination of the city. <p></p> <p></p>Tickets for the match have been sold out well in advance and there is a long demand for more but ACA secretary Pradip Buragohain sounded helpless. <p></p> <p></p> The day has finally arrived, Buragohain told PTI while conducting a series of meetings for the smooth conduct of the match. We hope this is just the beginning and there are more to come. <p></p> <p></p>The mood was evident as fans shouted 'India India' at the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport when both the teams arrived in the evening by a chartered flight. <p></p> <p></p>Such was the craze that they did not even spare cricketer-turned-commentator Brett Lee, who was mobbed while coming out of the airport before being escorted by police. <p></p> <p></p>There will be an official opening of the ACA Barsapara Stadium by Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal ahead of the match and many VVIPs including governor Jagdish Mukhi are invited. <p></p> <p></p>India are 1-0 up in the series after the win in Ranchi yesterday and would look to seal the series here before the two teams head to Hyderabad for the last match.
