India and the West Indies will have the honour of meeting Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, prior to the start of the fourth ODI in Dharamsala.
Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) spokesman Sanjay Sharma confirmed that the Dalai Lama will also “tie Tibetan scarves around the players’ necks”.
“It is a great honour for us that His Holiness has confirmed his presence for the match,” Sharma said. “He is usually travelling around the world but this time he happens to be in the country.
“Though His Holiness will not be around for long, he will meet the players on the field right before the start of the match and tie Tibetan scarves around the players’ necks.”
The series is currently tied 1-1 after the third ODI in Visakhapatnam was cancelled due to Cyclone Hudhud.
