First things first, international cricket returned to iconic Brabourne Stadium after a gap of nine years as India hosted Windies in the fourth One-Day International (ODI) in Mumbai. The last time international match took place at the Brabourne Stadium was in 2009 when MS Dhoni-led India faced Australia in a Test match. Meanwhile, this is India’s first ODI at the historic venue in 23 years. The last time India played an ODI at the Brabourne Stadium was way back in 1995 when Mohammed Azharuddin-led side defeated New Zealand by six wickets. IND vs WI 4th ODI Live Score Updates
As international cricket made its way back to the venue, master blaster Sachin Tendulkar rang the bell to officially start proceedings. The practice of ringing the bell before a cricket match takes inspiration from Lord's Cricket Ground in London. On similar lines, Eden Gardens in Kolkata follows the ritual as well.
Interestingly, Wankhede Stadium in the city was initially scheduled to host the fourth ODI. However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shifted the match to the Cricket Club of India (CCI). "Under the instructions of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India appointed Committee of Administrators, the fourth One-day International match between India and Windies scheduled on 29th October at Wankhede Stadium has been shifted to Cricket Club of India, Mumbai," read the BCCI statement.
