Change of venue due to player safety and grounds – ICC
Why the Pakistan Cricket Board wants to change these two venues has not been answered. So ICC and BCCI have rejected his demand. BCCI said that the tournament is very close, in such a situation the venue cannot be changed. Although India has the right to change the venue, but for this too the permission of the ICC has to be sought. Venues can be changed in the World Cup only when there is an issue regarding the safety of the players. But there is nothing like that here. Also, the venue can be changed when the ground is not considered suitable for international cricket.
The venue has been changed many times before
The match with Pakistan is to be played against Team India at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The PCB then demanded to change the venue citing security reasons, but the ICC and BCCI also ignored this demand. However, the venue has been changed many times before. As during the 2016 T20 World Cup, the India-Pakistan match was shifted from Dharamshala to Kolkata due to security reasons.
