The date chosen by the board for the match between India and Pakistan is October 15, which is also the first day of the auspicious festival of ‘Navratri’, which is celebrated with fervor especially in Gujarat. As the Board of Control of Cricket India (BCCI) was advised by security agencies to reconsider the match, the decision has become a matter of high importance and debate.

Several security agencies are urging the BCCI to consider a change in the date of the India-Pakistan clash.

The Navratri festival, celebrated with an all-night Garba dance in Gujarat, is expected to strain the resources of security agencies, making the prospect of hosting a high-profile match with thousands of traveling fans a challenging task. Accordingly, the BCCI is deliberating on the best course of action to ensure the safety and smooth experience for both players and spectators.

As speculation about the rescheduling spread, fans took to social media to voice their concerns and opinions. The possibility of the most anticipated match of the group stage being modified has caused widespread debate, and the BCCI may have to prepare for a possible reaction on digital platforms. Additionally, the lack of updates on ticket sales for World Cup matches adds to the anxiety and curiosity surrounding the event. Despite the lack of full information, hotels in cities that will host 2023 World Cup matches are fully booked.

In response to the escalating situation, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah called a meeting of all the host venues on July 27 in New Delhi. The meeting is aimed at facilitating discussions and decisions on matters related to the India-Pakistan clash and any other relevant issues. The outcome of this meeting may set the course for the cricket extravaganza the world is eagerly awaiting.
