Barabati to host 1st ODI vs Sri Lanka on Nov 2
The first ODI match between India and Sri Lanka to be played at Barabati Stadium, Cuttack on November 2. Tickets for this tie will be sold online from tomorrow. Sri Lanka has agreed to play five ODIs in India. Tickets will be available at counters only on October 30 and 31.
Other ODI venues will be Kolkata, Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Hyderabad. The Odisha Cricket Association (OCA) had requested the BCCI to allot the first ODI to Cuttack, as it would be impossible to hold the match during th historic Bali Yatra in Cuttack, which will begin from November 6.
Barabati was scheduled to host the lone T20 match between India and West Indies. But, as the West Indies team pulled out of the tour following a dispute with their Board, it lost the opportunity.
