However, Cyclone Hudhud, which ravaged the port city of Visakhapatnam (Vizag), has triggered massive rains, which may last till October 15. Also, since the cops and other officials would be engaged in rescue and relief operations, the government will find it tough to make necessary arrangements for the ODI.

India and West Indies are now levelled at 1-1. As the Vizag ODI has been abandoned, the fourth ODI of the series will be held in Dharamshala (Himchal Pradesh) on October 17.
