The India vs Pakistan World Cup ODI match may get moved to October 14 due to Navratri celebrations in Ahmedabad. The schedule was previously released by the BCCI and the ICC, with the title match taking place at the world’s largest cricket stadium. This move may worsen fans’ experience, as hotel and airfare costs for Ahmedabad have increased. ICC will work with the BCCI to decide on the new date, and fans will need adjustments to their travel schedules. The BCCI will meet with state associations to discuss World Cup preparations and the creation of a World Cup Working Group.
The possible advance of India vs Pakistan ODI World Cup match
Should the need arise, the ICC will work with the BCCI to decide on the new date. The game will not move out of Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium, it is clear.
Beginning of Navratri celebrations
Due to the beginning of Navratri celebrations in Ahmedabad, the highly anticipated India-Pakistan match in the forthcoming ODI World Cup could get moved up to October 14 instead of October 15. The World Cup schedule was previously released by BCCI and ICC, with the title match taking place in Ahmedabad.
Fans’ experience may worsen as the game move by day
Following the release of the schedule, hotel and airfare costs for Ahmedabad drastically rose, upsetting fans who intended to attend the game. The fans’ experience will probably be worse if the game gets moved by a day.
Security of the high-profile game
“The security agencies proposed that the big game, which will also require an extensive installation of security officials, gets moved up because October 15 falls on the first day of Navratri celebrations,” a BCCI source told PTI.
The match will not move out of Ahmedabad
Should the need arise, the ICC will work with the BCCI to decide on the new date. The game will not move out of Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium, it is clear. Fans will, therefore, still need adjustments to their travel schedules.
Reports that ardent fans from the world turned to reserve hospital beds in the city as lodging during the match came to light due to the city’s already ridiculous hotel rates.
The BCCI will meet to review World Cup preparations
To discuss World Cup preparations, the BCCI organized a gathering with the state associations hosting World Cup matches tomorrow in New Delhi. The meeting will also cover the potential change in the game’s date between India and Pakistan.
A state unit official declared, “They called the gathering to assess the World Cup preparations.”
In a letter to the state associations, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah also discussed the creation of a World Cup Working Group. The preparations for all venues, including the practice ones in Trivandrum and Guwahati, will be under the direction of the BCCI’s five office-bearers. This group will include Shah and BCCI president Roger Binny.
From October 5 to November 19, The World Cup will occur in 10 locations. It will include Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Dharamsala, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai, and Pune.
