Two matches which were originally scheduled to be played at Kanpur's Green Park have been shifted to Lucknow and Meerut by the Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association as the former is slated to play host to a One-Day International during the upcoming series between India and Pakistan.
This year's tournament assumes added importance as the first two rounds are to be played before the commencement of the Test series against Pakistan and all the top players are expected to take part to get tuned to the rigours of the Test rubber.
Revised schedule: Feb 15-18: North Zone vs West Zone at Lucknow; East vs Central at Bikaner. Feb 22-25: West vs South at Meerut; East vs Bangladesh at Nagpur. Mar 1-4: North vs South at Indore; Bangladesh vs Central at Jaipur.
