"The match, which was scheduled to be played at Belgaum next week, has been shifted to Bengaluru due to expected inclement weather conditions," KSCA Spokesperson Vinay Mruthanjaya told PTI in Bengaluru.

The first of the two games was scheduled to be played in Belgaum from 4 to 7 August followed by the second one in Bengaluru (10-13 August). But now both the matches will be held in Bengaluru.

Mruthunjaya said local ground staff could not prepare the pitch due to incessant weather in Belgaum, forcing BCCI to shift the series opener.

"The groundsmen escalated the matter to higher KSCA authorities, who took up the matter with BCCI officials," he said.
