IND vs AUS Barabati ODI called off

The fifth One-Day International between India and Australia was called off without a ball being bowled on Saturday (October 26).

The formalities were completed after an 11am inspection of the Barabati Stadium by Nigel Llong, S Ravi, and C Shamsuddin, the umpires.

“In this scenario, we intend to refund the money to the ticket holders from November 8-15, between 10 am and 5 pm at the three ticket counters of the Barabati Stadium,” OCA secretary Asirbad Behera told.

Those who purchased online would get the refunds directly remitted to their respective accounts, Behera said.

This washout, following the no-result in Ranchi in the fourth ODI, has effectively reduced the seven-match series into a five-match one, and given Australia’s 2-1 lead, they would have been more buoyant than the Indians.

There was no such consolation for Cuttack’s spectators though, and Asirbad Behera, said it was likely that the match between the West Indians and Uttar Pradesh, to be played from October 31 to November 2, would be moved to Mumbai.

The venue turned out to be jinxed for both the teams as the last match between India and Australia was too abandoned without a single bowl being bowled exactly about 17 years back on October 27, 1996.

Both teams now travel to Nagpur for the sixth and penultimate ODI at Jamtha on October 30.

The series will conclude in Bangalore on November 2.
