BCCI has announced a revised schedule for India‘s limited-overs series. Now the series which comprises three ODIs and three T20Is will be played in two venues-Ahmedabad and Kolkata. BCCI stated that the decision was taken to minimize the risk of bubble break as the situation of the Covid outbreak has been worsened in the past couple of weeks.

“The three ODIs will now be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad and three T20Is will be held at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata.

“The decision to limit the series to two venues instead of six as originally announced has been done to mitigate biosecurity risks by cutting down on travel and movement of the teams, match officials, broadcasters, and other stakeholders,” the BCCI release stated.

BCCI is also likely to change the schedule for the series against Sri Lanka

According to the original schedule, the ODI matches were set to be played at Ahmedabad, Jaipur, and Kolkata while the T20I matches were scheduled to take place at Cuttack, Visakhapatnam, and Thiruvananthapuram.

After the series against West Indies, India will also host Sri Lanka for a series comprising two tests and 3 T2oIs. The decision for venues of that series hasn’t been taken yet, it’s likely that all three T20Is will be played in the same venue.

On the other side, India is currently touring South Africa where they will play their last match on Sunday. The hosts already claimed the series by 2-0 in the 3-match series. Earlier South Africa also won the test series by 2-1 despite losing the first match.
