Mumbai is all geared up to host the Cricket World Cup final between India and Sri Lanka.

It is the first time that the one-day cup final will feature two South Asian teams.

More than 10,000 security personnel will guard the Wankhede Stadium where the event will be held on Saturday. The BBC reports the stadium resembles a fortress.

The players spent most of Friday at the nets at the stadium to acclimatise to the pitch and the weather conditions.

Both teams are staying at the Taj Hotel.
