Probable noon start to India-Pak ODI in Delhi
The Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) has asked the Indian cricket board to consider an early start to the third and last one-day international against Pakistan at the Ferozeshah Kotla on January 6 in view of the heavy winter dew so as to negate an unfair advantage to the side winning the toss.
Day-night ODI matches are normally start at 2.30pm, but the Pakistan game may well have a noon start. “Delhi in January has heavy dew in the evenings and we have requested the Board of Control for Control in India (BCCI) to start the match at noon,” Chetan Chauhan, DDCA vice president, told IANS on Saturday.
