India England Fifth ODI

Guwahati, April 9, 2006

Violence follows abandonment of fifth India-England one-dayer

The spectators in Guwahati, in the northeastern state of Assam, attacked police with water bottles and threw stones at TV cameras as heavy overnight rain and wet ground conditions caused the abandonment of the fifth one-dayer between India and England on Sunday.
Two policemen and one spectator were injured in the violence after umpires Rudi Koertzen and Arani Jayaprakash decided no play would be possible.
India was seeking a 5-0 lead in the seven-game series after winning the four previous four encounters. The sixth match takes place in Jamshedpur in three days.

The Venue

India Cricket Live

Nehru Stadium, Guwahati

The first one-day international at this ground was staged as recently as 1983, and there have been only 11 in total.
A negative aspect of the venue, located in the north-east of the country, is the predominance of heavy early morning fog and quickly fading evening light.
That may explain why Test cricket has never been played there but there are floodlights available for the ODIs.
The venue is capable of holding 25,000 and the highest ODI score is 333-6 by India against Zimbabwe in 2002.
