New Delhi: The BCCI on Thursday decided to shift the second ODI between India and New Zealand from October 19th to 20th due to 'Karva Chauth' festival.
Senior BCCI and DDCA vice president CK Khanna confirmed the development that BCCI has agreed to their request.
In fact, DDCA had written a letter to BCCI Secretary Ajay Shirke intimating the board about the practical difficulties of organising the match on the day of a festival prevalent in North India. The ticket sales would have taken a hit.
Meanwhile, Delhi’s Feroz Shah Kotla is all set to host the opening warm-up fixture of New Zealand’s tour of India when the visitors take on Board President’s XI from September 16-18.
