Kolkata: The seventh One-day International between India and the West Indies on November 24 will be played in the southern town of Vijayawada, officials said on Wednesday.

The match was originally allotted to the neighbouring port city of Visakhapatnam, but had to be changed since the new stadium there was incomplete, BCCI secretary Karunakaran Nair said. Vijayawada was cleared for its first international match by former South African all- rounder Mike Proctor, who is the International Cricket Council's (ICC) match referee for the current West Indian tour. Procter visited Vijayawada immediately after the second Test in Chennai last week and gave the venue a favourable report, Nair said. The seven-match One-day series begins on November 6 after the conclusion of the ongoing third Test.
