Changes in original schedule of ODI World Cup expected in coming days: Jay Shah

BCCI secretary Jay Shah said on Thursday that changes in the original schedule of the upcoming Men’s ODI World Cup is likely to be announced in next coming days.

Shah however, didn’t specified whether it also includes the much-awaited clash between arch-rivals India-Pakistan at Ahmedabad.

With the marquee match of the World Cup clashing with the first day of the Navaratri, the local police have urged the Indian board that it would find it difficult to provide security on the day.

“You can expect to see some changes to the original World Cup schedule which will be cleared in the coming two, three or four days, following some requests for changes from two to three member boards. The changes will be there in the schedule, but not in venues. The ICC and BCCI logistics teams are looking into it,” Shah said in a press conference.

Meanwhile, Shah also informed that pacer Jasprit Bumrah could play in the T20I series against Ireland in August.

Notably, Bumrah last played competitive cricket in September last year during against Australia in T20Is, before a recurrence in back injury forced him out of action since then.

Bumrah has been undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru since undergoing back surgery in New Zealand in March this year and the BCCI had said in a medical update tecently that the pacer was bowling with full intensity in the nets.

“Bumrah is totally fit and he may go to Ireland,” said Shah.
