CCI prepares to host ODI India-West Indies in Mumbai

MUMBAI: With the return of international cricket after several years, the Cricket Club of India (ICC) is ready to host the fourth ODI between India and the West Indies on October 29th.

The Mumbai Cricket Association, meanwhile, is likely to seize the Bombay High Court against BCCI's decision to move the match from Wankhede Stadium, a source said.

"Preparations are underway, we have received a letter from BCCI, and we are in the process of making contacts with a ticket agency," said a senior CCI official on Monday.

"Prices and details of the sale will be announced shortly," he added.

BCCI last Friday transferred the 29 October match from Wankhede Stadium here to the picturesque Brabourne stadium, after the Mumbai Cricket Association reported financial constraints to organizing it.

The ICC, which usually hosts international team matches on the road, organized an international ODI in 2006.

His last international test was held in 2009, when India was attacked in Sri Lanka.

"The work of assigning various calls for tenders for the ODI game is underway.About 25,000 tickets will be available for sale," said the manager.

A vexed MCA sent a letter to the BCCI Board of Directors on Saturday asking for the reasons for the delay.

A source from the city's cricket corps said on Monday that the MCA, its eligible members and its two affiliated clubs would be about to convince the Bombay High Court to file an interim motion against BCCI's decision to move the match of the Wankhede stadium.
