The second ODI of Sri Lanka's India tour, on December 18, has been shifted to Nagpur from the original venue, Visakhapatnam, following concerns over security arrangements. Visakhapatnam has been in the eye of a storm due to protests by students and activists at the federal government's decision to create a new state in the northern region of the state of Andhra Pradesh.

"The prevailing situation is such that all the city police are deployed in the maintenance of regular law and order, and to conduct the match in ordinary circumstances we need to deploy 80% of the city force," said Visakhapatnam Police Commissioner Sambhasiva Rao. "We have mentioned it to organising locals here that it not possible for us to commit any amount of force for the conduct of the match at this stage."

The match in Nagpur will be a day-night affair, said the Indian board.
