A video showing the Pakistani women's cricket team practicing at the Barabati Stadium, Cuttack, in preparation for the 2013 ICC Women's World Cup.

They practised for four hours even as a small group of agitators staged a demonstration outside the fortified venue.

Pakistan's matches had been shifted from Mumbai in the wake of protests from several quarters following the beheading of Indian soldiers along the Line of Control (LoC).

Even as the players from the neighbouring country hit the ground in dusky colour track suits, about 1500 khaki-clad security personnel guarded them.

The entire stadium as well as the city has been turned into a fortress.
