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.

PPP to Zaka Ashraf: You can't play on December 27 because we can't have people cheering on a cricket match when they should be remembering our leader.

Zaka Ashraf: Should we still play on December 25 then? That's when Jinnah was born.

PPP: What's a Jinnah?

PCB should have notified this to BCCI before scheduling the series. What about all the fans who have already booked flights, hotel accommodation, arranged their schedules considering the first released dates. Loss of money for fans.

This is the dumbest excuse. The truth is Pak wants to play on a Friday to get max support from its fans.

What a preposterous reason to reschedule an International match .. Could have made sense if the game was in Pakistan !!

this is done because " if Pak win this game then they will not want to celebrate "
