BCCI re-schedules India-Australia series

The Indian Cricket Board has revised the schedule of the upcoming home tour of Australia but the re-jigged dates continue to clash with October’s Commonwealth Games here.

The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) had sought sports ministry’s intervention in pursuing the BCCI to change the dates of the tour to avoid a clash with the Games.

However, the Board had said that they have not been approached by anyone for any change.

According to the revised itinerary, the two Test matches against Australia have been advanced by one day each.

The first Test will now be held from October 1 in Mohali and second from October 9 in Bengaluru.

The dates of the One-day series have also been changed.

The first ODI will be played on October 17 in Kochi and second on October 20 in Vizag.(PTI)
