Police have confirmed a terror threat to the first one-day international cricket match between India and South Africa in Jaipur scheduled this on Sunday.

B.L. Soni, inspector general of Rajasthan police, said his force had intelligence inputs of the threat.

"We have terror inputs of the threat and beefed up security at Sawai Mansingh Stadium (the match venue)," he said.

Intelligence agencies had earlier warned about terror strikes during various sporting events to be held in the country this year including the Hockey World Cup and the Commonwealth Games.

However, Home Minister P Chidambaram has assured all the visiting countries of foolproof security for the upcoming sporting events.
