Mohali and Delhi will remain the venues for the fourth and fifth One-Day Internationals (ODIs) between India and Australia, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed on Friday. C. K. Khanna, the acting BCCI president, said the Board has “no plans to shift” the venues in the wake of mounting political tension between India and Pakistan.
The fourth ODI in Mohali is scheduled on March 10 while the fifth game at Delhi will be held on March 13. Saurashtra had reportedly offered to host one of the games.
“There is certainly no such plan to shift any of the games from their original venues. I can confirm that both ODIs in Mohali and Delhi, [are] happening as per schedule,” Khanna told PTI .
Khanna claimed that there had never been any discussion on shifting venues. “As far as a back-up venue is concerned, the BCCI always has alternate arrangements in place in case a venue expresses its inability to hold a game. It was nice of Saurashtra to put their hand up but as of now, it will not be necessary,” Khanna said.
