Nagpur: The Indian and Sri Lankan cricket teams arrived here on Wednesday for the second ODI on December 18 at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium at Jamtha.

The teams arrived in the city from Rajkot, where the first of the five-match series was played, by a chartered flight. India is leading 1-0.

The second ODI was scheduled to be played at Visakhapatnam, but the match was shifted to the orange city due to the agitation in Andhra Pradesh over the Telangana statehood issue.

Nagpur had hosted a Twenty20 match between the two teams earlier this month.

Meanwhile, preparations for the match were nearing completion at the venue, located on the city’s outskirts. — PTI
