As international cricket returns to Brabourne Stadium after a decade, the Cricket Club of India (CCI) hopes that the fourth ODI between India and the Windies next Monday will be a high-scoring contest.

Announcing that it has invited Sachin Tendulkar to ring the bell and inaugurate the match, the CCI in a media release stated, "With the recent allocation of the fourth ODI of the India-West Indies Series to the CCI; Brabourne Stadium, with its magnificent ground, immaculately curated pitch that is likely to result in a high scoring match, other essential infrastructure for the International, as well as wide seating arrangements on the stands, premium stands and royal pavilion is fully prepared to host the ODI."

This came a few hours after the Bombay High Court dismissed a petition filed by the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) against the BCCI's decision to shift the fourth ODI from the Wankhede Stadium to Brabourne Stadium.

"We want to make sure that everything is in perfect shape and that the spectators can enjoy an entertaining match," a CCI official said.

Meanwhile, there is a possibility that the MSK Prasad-led national selection committee might meet in Pune on Friday to pick the teams for the T20 series against West Indies and Australia.
