Cuttack:

The Orissa Cricket Association is worried over the recurring problem of formation of beehives in two galleries of the Barabati stadium, the venue of the third one-dayer between India and Sri Lanka on December 21.

Presently, gallery number seven and eight are dotted with over a dozen large beehives and OCA Secretary Asirbad Behera told reporters that they have to be removed before the match.

"We are planning to remove the beehives in the first week of December so that the bees would not get time to form fresh hives before the match," he said.

The organisers came across the same problem during the India-England encounter at the venue in November 2008. Honey collectors from Keonjhar and Mayurbhanj districts had removed the beehives then to allow a trouble-free match.

"We have got in touch with the same honey collectors who will be in the town much in advance to remove the beehives," Behera said.
