BCCI, West Indies agree to change venues: The BCCI announced a schedule for the India vs West Indies limited series. The games are going to be played in six different locations:
To reduce biosecurity hazards, the FIFA World Cup matches will be played in two locations instead of six as originally planned.
The news article states that the hosts will only play the series in two venues, instead of six. The three-match ODI matches will be played at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad and the T20I leg will be played at Eden Gardens.
The ABP report states that the change to the venue had already been discussed. An official close to the board said, “In the current Covid situation, it will be difficult to host all six matches in six different venues, as was scheduled earlier. We cannot risk anyone getting exposed to Covid which is why we plan on hosting all of our matches in only two venues.”
Ahmedabad and Kolkata are prime locations to host the ODI and T20I games respectively.

India Vs. West Indies Twenty-20: India has a big news related to the five-match series against the West Indies. The venue of these two matches can also be changed, though there is no confirmation yet. Big reason behind this has also come to light.
There are now clouds of uncertainty hanging over the last two matches in India’s T20 series with West Indies. They are going to be played, but not in India.
One of the challenges for both the teams is getting visas from the US. So far, three matches have been played on the team’s home soil. The last two matches may happen in Lauderhill, Florida instead.
