The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to move the third ODI between India and New Zealand from October 19 to the 20th due to 'Karva Chauth' festival.
Senior BCCI and DDCA vice president CK Khanna confirmed the development that BCCI has agreed to their request.
"We are thankful to BCCI for accepting our request of shifting the date by a day. I have received a letter of acknowledgement for the same from BACK office," Khanna told PTI on Thursday.
In fact, DDCA had written a letter to BCCI Secretary Ajay Shirke intimating to 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.
