Indore loss is Vizag’s gain
Visakhapatnam will host the second oneday international between India and the West Indies, the BCCI said Wednesday, after a dispute over distribution of complimentary passes moved the October 24 game out of Indore
New Delhi: Visakhapatnam will host the second one-day international between India and the West Indies, the BCCI said Wednesday, after a dispute over distribution of complimentary passes moved the October 24 game out of Indore.
The Holkar Stadium at Indore, which was scheduled to host the match, lost out due to a dispute between the Indian board and the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association over the distribution of complimentary passes.
"The second Paytm ODI to be played between India and West Indies will now be held at Visakhapatnam's Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA–VDCA Cricket Stadium," the BCCI said in a press release.
As per the new BCCI constitution, 90 percent tickets of the total capacity of the stadium must be put on public sale, which effectively leaves 10 percent of complimentary tickets left with state units.
In this case, the Holkar stadium has capacity to accommodate 27,000 fans and MPCA was left with 2700 complimentary tickets.
The BCCI also demands its share of free passes for its sponsors and thus the bone of contention.
The clamour for free passes during international games has always been an issue with BCCI affiliated units.
The match will now be held at the picturesque ACA-VDCA (Andhra Cricket Association/Visakhapatnam District Cricket Association) ground, set on the outskirts of the port city amidst scenic hills.
West Indies and India will play five One-Day Internationals in the series.
