NEW DELHI: As expected, the high-octane World Cup clash between India and Pakistan has been advanced by a day to October 14 at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, ICC said on Wednesday. The schedule of eight other matches have also been changed.

The match was originally slated to take place on October 15 at the same venue but now will be played a day before.

The change in the schedule came after Ahmedabad Police reportedly had told the BCCI that it would be difficult for it to take care of security on October 15 which happens to be the first day of the Hindu festival of Navratri.
As a result, England’s fixture against Afghanistan in Delhi will be moved from Saturday, 14 October and will now be played 24 hours later on Sunday, 15 October.
Pakistan’s contest against Sri Lanka in Hyderabad has moved from Thursday, 12 October to now being played on Tuesday, 10 October and Australia’s big match against South Africa in Lucknow moved back 24 hours and will now be played on Thursday, 12 October instead of Friday, 13 October.
