The India-Pakistan World Cup game, which was originally scheduled to be played on October 15, 2023, is likely to be rescheduled. The reason for the rescheduling is that October 15 is the first day of Navratri, a major Hindu festival in Gujarat, where the match is to be played. Security agencies have advised the BCCI to reschedule the match as they are concerned about the logistical challenges of managing a large crowd on a day when there will be a major religious festival taking place.
The BCCI has already sent a request to the ICC to reschedule the match. It is expected that the match will be moved to October 14, 2023. This will still be during Navratri, but it will be on a day when there is less religious activity taking place.
The rescheduling of the India-Pakistan match is a disappointment for fans who have already made travel plans for the match. However, it is understandable that the security agencies have concerns about the safety of the crowd. The BCCI has said that they will try to find a new date for the match that is convenient for fans.
