Dharamsala ODI start deferred by half-an-hour



Dharamsala ODI start deferred by half-an-hourDharamsala: The fifth and final cricket one-dayer between India and England here tomorrow will start half-an-hour later than the scheduled start due to inclement weather conditions in the hill town, the BCCI announced on Saturday.

"The fifth ODI between India and England, scheduled to be played at Dharamsala on Sunday, 27 January 2013, will start at 9:30 am, instead of 9:00 am," the BCCI said in a release.

The revised timings will have no effect over the length of the game as it would be a 50-overs-a-side affair.

India has taken an unassailable 3-1 lead in the series and the final ODI gives the host team a chance to test the bench. England, meanwhile, would look to end the tour on a positive note.
