ICC recently announced the ODI World Cup schedule. But due to the Navratri festival now 6 match days including India-Pakistan will be changed in this schedule. The match was scheduled to be held on October 15 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Basically, from October 15, the religious festival of Hindus ‘Navratri’ will start. Which is a big festival in Gujarat. So there were many other issues including security. As a result, organizing the match on that day would have caused problems. With the changes, it is believed that the India-Pak match may go ahead one day. In that case, the match can be played on October 14. However, this great rivalry will be organized in the same venue.

This has been confirmed by the International Cricket Council (ICC). Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is also satisfied with this decision. Due to the Navratri festival, the Indian law and order forces told the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) that there may be a problem with security in India, a major Hindu country. That is why the demand to change the schedule of the match was raised. Bangladesh will play against New Zealand on October 14 in Chennai. And there is also a match between Afghanistan and England in Delhi. However, as there are three matches in one day, there may be changes in the schedule again.
Apart from this, changes are coming in the schedule of several other matches. The match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka was scheduled to be played on October 12. That match came two days earlier on October 10. It is believed that this match has been advanced because the India-Pakistan match has progressed. Because playing in Hyderabad on October 12 and playing against India in Ahmedabad on October 14 is very difficult for Pakistan. Pakistan’s match against the Netherlands on October 6 at the same venue in Hyderabad could also be pushed back by a day or two.
