As a result of this rescheduling, Pakistan will now face Sri Lanka in Hyderabad on October 10 instead of October 12.
The decision to reschedule the India vs Pakistan match was necessitated by concerns related to security deployment on the first day of the Navratri festival in Ahmedabad.
The ICC and BCCI had approached the PCB to request the rescheduling of two of its group matches, including the one against India in Ahmedabad.
Following these changes, the ICC will soon release an updated schedule, as it is likely that a few other games involving other teams will also be rescheduled.
Pakistan’s current schedule for the ICC World Cup 2023 (without above-mentioned changes):
October 6 – vs Netherlands in Hyderabad
October 12 – vs Sri Lanka in Hyderabad
October 15 – vs India in Ahmedabad
October 20 – vs Australia in Bengaluru
October 23 – vs Afghanistan in Chennai
October 27 – vs South Africa in Chennai
October 31 – vs Bangladesh in Kolkata
November 4 – vs New Zealand Bengaluru
