Revised venues for home series vs West Indies announced; 1st ODI on Feb 6 in Ahmedabad
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Saturday announced a change in venues for the upcoming West Indies Tour of India. The West Indies will arrive here for a white-ball series comprising three ODIs and as many T20Is.
The three ODIs will now be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad and three T20Is will be held at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
The decision to limit the series to two venues instead of six as originally announced has been done to mitigate bio-security risks by cutting down on travel and movement of the teams, match officials, broadcasters, and other stakeholders.
Revised schedule: 1st ODI: February 6, Ahmedabad 2nd ODI: February 9, Ahmedabad 3rd ODI: February 11, Ahmedabad 1st T20I: February 16, Kolkata 2nd T20I: February 18, Kolkata 3rd T20I: February 20, Kolkata
