BCCI VP Rejects a Request to Alter the World Cup 2023 Schedule Further

BCCI VP rejects a request to alter the World Cup 2023 Schedule further. Rajeev Shukla, vice president of the Board for Cricket Control in India (BCCI), has sent out a clear statement rejecting calls for more alterations to the calendar for the ICC World Cup 2023, which is scheduled to take place in India in October.

Shukla stated in an official statement on Sunday that the World Cup fixture will not change further because it involves a number of parties.

The Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) requested a change in the schedule, and the BCCI Vice President responded with his comments.

The HCA’s request follows a lengthy list of fixture modifications and comes just 10 days after the ICC released the tournament’s updated schedule.

The initial schedule, which was revealed in June, included up to nine modifications, including the highly awaited India vs. Pakistan match.

One game between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in Hyderabad was changed from October 10 to October 12 as part of the original schedule’s nine modifications.

As a result, Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium was forced to stage back-to-back games on October 9 between New Zealand and the Netherlands.

However, the HCA has now requested another alteration to the World Cup schedule, requesting at least one day to pass between the two days in order to address security concerns brought up by the Hyderabad police regarding those back-to-back games.

According to an HCA official who spoke to Hindustan Times under the condition of anonymity, “I can’t say it would be modified for sure because back-to-back games are not ideal. I mean, it will be fine and nice if the BCCI is contemplating.

We’ll have to collaborate with security organizations. Anyone would appreciate having a day off between World Cup matches. To determine if it is feasible or not, we are still talking to security organisations. We are also keeping BCCI informed at the same time. The BCCI is fully aware of what we’re attempting. Shukla, however, declined the request.
