Indore:

The Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) has urged the state government to waive off the entertainment tax for the fourth one-dayer between India and the West Indies at Indore's Holkar Stadium on December 8.

"We have requested Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to waive the entertainment tax which would be around Rs 75 lakh," MPCA CEO Rohit Pandit said at a press conference here on Monday.

The stadium, having a capacity of 21,000 spectators, would fetch revenue worth Rs two crore, he said.

The day-night encounter will be the 12th ODI held in Indore and the third hosted by the Holkar stadium, MPCA Secretary Narendra Menon said.

For the match, S Ravi (Chennai) and Tony Hill (New Zealand) would be the on-field umpires, Sudhir Asnani (Indore) would be the TV umpire while Nandan of Bangalore would be the fourth umpire. Former Australia batman David Boon would be the match referee and Kamlesh Thakkar (Maharashtra Cricket Association) would be the BCCI observer, he said.

The teams would arrive at Indore by a chartered flight from Ahmedabad, that hosts the third ODI, on December 6, he added.
