The one-off Test match between India and Bangladesh has been pushed by a day and will now take place from February 9-13 in Hyderabad.

“We have received the notification from BCCI. The game will start on Thursday instead of Wednesday, February 8,” John Manoj, Hyderabad Cricket Association secretary, confirmed to the agencies.

The BCCI feels that overall crowd attendance over five days will be better with the game beginning on a Thursday. Bangladesh has toured India in the past for multi-team events but has never played a Test or bilateral series against the home team.

Bangladesh is currently playing in New Zealand and it is expected to arrive in India by February 1, after which it would play a three-day warm-up match followed by the Test.
