The second Twenty20 [ Images ] International between India [ Images ] and Pakistan in Ahmedabad [ Images ] on December 27 has been pushed back by a day after the Board of Control for Cricket in India acceded to a request from their Pakistani counterparts.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) requested that the match to be re-scheduled as December 27 is the death anniversary of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto [ Images ], who was assassinated in 2007.
Following the change, the second T20 match will now be held in Ahmedabad on December 28.
Pakistan will tour India later this month for a limited-overs series comprising two Twenty20 matches and three One-Day Internationals.
Pakistan will be visiting India for a bilateral series after five years, the last being in 2007-08, for a three-Test and five-match ODI tour.
Ties between the two countries' cricket authorities were hit by the 2008 Mumbai [ Images ] attacks, in which 175 people died.
