BCCI re-schedules Australia tour

Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India(BCCI) has revised the schedule of the upcoming home series against Australia but the new schedule continues to clash with the October's Commonwealth Games.

The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) had sought Sports Ministry's intervention in pursuing the BCCI to change the dates of the tour to avoid a clash with the Games.

The Board said that they had not got any notice from the IOA for any change.

According to the new schedule, the two Test matches against Australia have been advanced by one day each.

The first Test will now be held from October 1 in Mohali and second from October 9 in Bangalore.

The dates of the One-day series have also been changed. The first ODI will be played on October 17 in Kochi and second on October 20 in Vizag. The third ODI will be played on October 24 in Goa.

The BCCI also released the schedule of the New Zealand home tour, which will begin with the first Test from November 4 in Ahmedabad.

The second Test will be played from November 12-16 in Kanpur while the third and final Test is scheduled for Nagpur from November 20-24.

A five-match ODI series will be played after the three- match Test series.
