Eden Gardens may host fourth India-Sri Lanka ODI

Kolkata: It's not official yet, but Eden Gardens is in line to host the fourth one-dayer on November 13 in the upcoming stop gap five-match ODI series against Sri Lanka.

"We are most likely to get the fourth ODI here on November 13. It's difficult to host the match here before that, as the MAK Pataudi Lecture is planned here and the Board officials would be busy till November 10," CAB treasurer Biswarup Dey told reporters here.

He further said ICC chairman and sidelined BCCI chief N Srinivasan would visit the city on Sunday on a personal visit. "He's here to inaugurate an NGO and it's a personal visit, it would be his first visit to the city after becoming ICC chairman," Dey said.

The Lanka series, which was organised in the 11th hour after the Windies cancelled their tour midway, is likely to begin in Cuttack with the first ODI on November 2 followed by Hyderabad, Ranchi, Kolkata and Ahmedabad.

The detailed itinerary is yet to be announced.
