The seventh and final one-day international of the current cricket series between India and Sri Lanka, scheduled to be held at the IPCL ground in Vadodara on November 12, has been insured to the tune of Rs 7.45 crore.

Disclosing this at a media conference, Baroda Cricket Association (BCA) President Chirayu Amin, said the insurance cover would encompass all the aspects of staging the match, including public liability.

Amin also said the BCA was installing a giant 20x27 feet LCD screen at the venue for the convenience of the spectators who could watch instant replays, match summaries, scores, statistics, etc on it.

Amin also said that for the first time the media centre and dressing rooms of both the teams would have wireless technology installed for computer networking.

Meanwhile, members of the rival teams - after arriving from Rajkot on Wednesday night following the sixth ODI - preferred to take rest on Thursday in their hotel rooms.

India have taken a commanding 5-1 lead going into the last game on Saturday.

The national senior selection committee will meet after the match to choose the team for the five-match ODI series against South Africa, Chairman of the panel Kiran More said.
