Bangladesh Cricket Board move series start times
January 07, 2010The Bangladesh Cricket Board has brought forward the start of matches in the one-day triangular series with Sri Lanka and India in an effort to reduce the effect of dew on the result of games. All matches played so far have overwhelmingly favoured teams batting second as the dew made it difficult for bowlers of the team fielding second to grip the ball. This came in for severe criticism from the captains of the three teams.
Rest of the matches will begin 30 minutes earlier than the originally scheduled 2.30 pm local-time start.

Delhi ODI: Match abandoned; Kotla may lose 2011 WC matches (IND-SRL: 3-1|5)
December 27, 2009The fifth and final ODI at the Kotla, on Sunday, was forced to be abandoned after 23.3 overs as the pitch was deemed too dangerous to play on. Sri Lanka had toiled on the tricky surface to post 83/5, after being put in to bat in foggy conditions, before play was abandoned. Zaheer Khan provided India a dream start, cleaning up the in-form Upul Tharanga with the first delivery of the match. As the pitch turned nasty, Dilshan was struck on the elbow by Nehra's second delivery in the tenth over. Sanath Jayasuriya was also struck on the shoulder by Zaheer first and then Sudeep Tyagi. Tyagi, who made his ODI debut, finished with figures of 6.3-1-15-1. His lone wicket was that of Kumar Sangakkara who made one. Soon after he was out, Sangakkara decided he had enough and called his batsmen back to the pavilion. There were mild, isolated protests which spread and took a violent turn when it was announced at 12:30 pm that the match has been abandoned.The Board of Control for Cricket in India responded to the fiasco by dissolving its grounds and pitches committee, while the Delhi District Cricket Association apologised to fans and spectators and offered to refund the cost of tickets. Haroon Lorgat, the ICC's chief executive, said that Delhi would not be punished for the abandonment before an investigation was held.
Match abandoned after 23.3 overs; Sri Lanka 83/5 (Jayasuriya 31, Zaheer 2-31) v India
