PCB thanks BCCI for rescheduling Indo-Pak T20 tie

Last updated on: December 15, 2012 21:23 IST

PCB chairman Zaka Ashraf thanked BCCI president N Srinivasan for postponing the second Twenty20 International between India and Pakistan by a day, which was originally scheduled to be played in Ahmedabad on December 27.

"Zaka Ashraf has sent a letter to Mr Srinivasan thanking him for this gesture," PCB media manager Nadeem Sarwar said on Saturday.

The PCB, in its request to the BCCI, had asked for the Ahmedabad match to be rescheduled as it coincides with the fifth death anniversary of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, who was assassinated in 2007.

"The PCB chairman is grateful that the Indian board responded positively to his request although the BCCI had already printed tickets for the match on Dec 27th," Sarwar said.

The game will now be played on December 28 at the same venue.

Pakistan will be touring India later this month for a limited-overs series comprising of two T20 Internationals and three One-Day Internationals.
