"We have received the notification from BCCI. The game will start on Thursday instead of Wednesday, 8 February," John Manoj, Hyderabad Cricket Association secretary, confirmed to PTI.

The BCCI feels that overall crowd attendance over five days will be better with the game beginning on a Thursday.

Bangladesh have toured India in the past for multi-team events but has never played a Test or bilateral series against the home team.

Bangladesh are currently playing in New Zealand and they are expected to arrive in India by 1 February, after which they would play a three-day warm-up match followed by the Test.
