Venues for Ind-Eng ODIs switched
The venues of the fourth and fifth ODIs of the five-match AIRTEL ODI series between India and England, to be played in January 2013, have been switched.
Accordingly, Mohali will host the fourth ODI on 23 January 2013, and Dharamsala the fifth, on 27 January 2013.
The Dharamsala ODI will be a ‘day’ game. The Mohali ODI will begin at 12:00 noon instead of 2:30 pm.
The timings of the sessions of the Mohali ODI will be as follows:
First Session - 12:00 noon to 3:30 pm
Interval - 3:30 pm to 4:15 pm
Second Session - 4:15 pm to 7:45 pm
These revisions have been made taking into account the cold evening temperatures that will prevail in Mohali and Dharamsala in late January. Since 27 January also happens to be a Sunday, a ‘day’ game in Dharamsala will give cricket-lovers the best chance to savour the encounter.
The revised schedule of the AIRTEL ODI series is as follows:
JANUARY 11TH FRIDAY 1ST ODI MATCH AT RAJKOT D/N
JANUARY 15TH TUESDAY 2ND ODI MATCH AT KOCHI D/N
JANUARY 19TH SATURDAY 3RD ODI MATCH AT RANCHI D/N
JANUARY 23RD WEDNESDAY 4TH ODI MATCH AT MOHALI * D/N
JANUARY 27TH SUNDAY 5TH ODI MATCH AT DHARAMSALA
*The Mohali ODI will start at 12:00 noon.
