India vs New Zealand: BCCI shifts Kotla ODI by one day due to 'Karva Chauth'

New Delhi: The BCCI on Thursday has decided to shift the third ODI between India and New Zealand from 19 to 20th October  due to 'Karva Chauth' festival.

Senior BCCI and DDCA vice president CK Khanna confirmed the development that BCCI has agreed to their request.

"We are thankful to BCCI for accepting our request of shifting the date by a day. I have received a letter of acknowledgement for the same from BACK office," Khanna told PTI on Thursday.

In fact, DDCA had written a letter to BCCI Secretary Ajay Shirke intimating the board about the practical difficulties of organising the match on the day of a festival prevalent in North India. The ticket sales would have taken a hit.
