KOLKATA: The Cricket Association of Bengal's first and second division One-Day matches will have 10 additional minutes per session because of extreme heat and humid conditions, the state body said on Thursday.

"The safety of everyone involved with the execution of CAB matches, including players and officials is of prime importance.

"Such added time must only be used as drinks break," CAB joint-secretary Avishek Dalmiya stated in a release.

"Supply of adequate quantity of Gatorade tablets to prevent dehydration; quantum of drinking water at local grounds to be increased; ambulances in more numbers to be made available so that no time is wasted in case of any injury or otherwise."
