India’s upcoming One-Day International (ODI) and Twenty20 series against the West Indies will be hosted in two cities to minimize “bio-security risks” amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) announced last week.
The white-ball series were originally intended to be played across six cities, but will now be hosted entirely in Ahmedabad (ODI) and Kolkata (T20) .
The BCCI said in a statement that the decision has been taken to mitigate bio-security risks by cutting down on travel and movement of teams, match officials, broadcasters and other stakeholders.
The two series will be played between Feb. 6 and 20.
