The second Twenty20 international between India and Pakistan, originally scheduled for December 27 this year in Ahmedabad, has been postponed by a day, the BCCI has confirmed. The game will be played on Friday, December 28, at the Sardar Patel Gujarat Stadium.
According to reports, the PCB requested the BCCI to reschedule the game, as December 27 is the death anniversary of Pakistan's former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, who was assassinated in 2007.
The rest of the itinerary remains unchanged. India and Pakistan play two Twenty20s and three ODIs between December 25 and January 6.
