Cuttack, Oct 25:
The Odisha Cricket Association (OCA) has revised the prices of tickets for special enclosures for the first day-and-night one-day international match between India and Sri Lanka to be played at Barabati stadium in Cuttack on November 2.
Ticket prices for the galleries, however, would remain the same as were fixed for the T 20 match between India and West Indies which was cancelled later, OCA secretary Asirbad Behera told media persons here today.
Behera said the OCA has paid a premium of Rs 7 lakh to the Oriental Insurance Company to insure the match for Rs 20 crore.
He said the twin city commissionerate police have made elaborate security arrangements for the players of both the teams, who are scheduled to arrive at the capital city on October 31.
Referring to the heavy rush of traffic around the stadium periphery on the day of the match, the OCA secretary said the district administration had been requested to provide the Baliyatra ground for parking of vehicles.
