It is expected that the highly anticipated match between Pakistan and India from the upcoming World Cup 2023 on October 15 in Ahmedabad may be rescheduled.

Security services have advised the BCCI to reconsider the schedule since it conflicts with the auspicious first day of Navratri, a significant holiday observed in Gujarat.

An unidentified senior BCCI official revealed that its board is seriously evaluating the possibilities put out by the security services.

As tickets for this match generally sell out rapidly, the postponement might be a logistical problem for supporters who have already made travel arrangements.

According to reports, Ahmedabad hotels are already fully booked for mid-October, making it difficult for cricket fans to obtain lodging.

The associations hosting World Cup games will meet on July 27 in New Delhi to discuss these growing worries, according to BCCI secretary Jay Shah.

The goal is to talk about the potential security hazards of holding the conflict during Navratri and potentially decide on an alternative date that provides the convenience and safety of all parties.

The Men in Green will begin their campaign on October 6 against the Netherlands, and on October 12 they will face Sri Lanka.
