ODI World dates have been announced. This tournament will be organized in India this year. Before the organization of this mega event, another big problem arose. In fact, the BCCI recently held a meeting regarding the first game between India and Pakistan. It speculated that the date of this game could be changed. Now the date of another game is to be changed. This competition is also held in Pakistan.

The date of this game is subject to change

The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) has shared with the ICC (International Cricket Council) reconnaissance team the concerns expressed by local security authorities regarding the World Cup match between Pakistan and England on November 12, the day of Kali Puja. This Reiki team that reached Eden Gardens on Saturday included six ICC and eleven BCCI (Indian Cricket Board) officials. If BCCI and ICC had to change the date of this game, it would be the third change in the Pakistan fixture list. Previously, the schedule for the India vs Pakistan game (14 October instead of 15 October in Ahmedabad) and the Sri Lanka vs Pakistan game (now 10 October instead of 12 October in Hyderabad) has been changed.

Decision on India-Pakistan game is still pending

Ahmedabad police had told BCCI that on October 15, the first day of Navratri, security would be difficult. The schedule was finalized by the ICC and BCCI at an event on June 27, but the revised schedule has yet to be released. Kali Puja is the second largest festival in West Bengal and is organized by thousands of local clubs. This requires a police operation in large numbers to maintain law and order throughout the city. CAB President Snehasish Ganguly has denied any official request to change the schedule, but another senior board official said Kolkata Police had already raised the issue.

questions about the preparations

A senior CAB official who was part of the 17-strong BCCI and ICC reconnaissance team said Kolkata police had raised concerns about the safety of the Diwali game. We have informed ICC and BCCI to postpone the date. If this is not the case, we will inform the Prime Minister. In such a situation, it remains to be seen whether or not the ICC will agree to another change in schedule. After a meeting with the ICC’s intelligence team, which lasted over three hours, CAB chief Snehasish said, “We have not heard anything official from the Kolkata police.” Until we receive official information, we cannot inform the ICC. The Kolkata police are taking care of the security problem. That’s none of our business. With many changes in the schedule of an important event like the soccer World Cup, the question arises as to whether the local security authorities have not been given the confidence to do so. It was revealed that the CAB requested the schedule change in a letter to BCCI Secretary Jay Shah on Friday.
