Kolkata ODI rescheduled

India England

Eden Gardens

The fifth one-day international between India and England has been moved forward a day to accompany the Kali Pooja festival

The BCCI has advised the ECB that the fifth one-day international between India and England, scheduled for Kolkata on October 26 2011, will have to be played a day earlier than originally agreed, in view of the Kali Pooja festival (October 26-28), which would have made the provision of appropriate security for the match problematic.

The fifth ODI will now be played at Eden Gardens on October 25. This is the only change made to the itinerary (previously released on June 29 2011), and the revised itinerary is as follows:
