‘Kya foonk rahe ho bhai’ – Fans troll Indian Management for scheduling India vs Netherlands ODI WC game on Diwali festival


The schedule of the ODI World Cup in India has been rescheduled after a long wait. Different boards raised issues around the schedule. Apart from this, even police departments of different states raised the issue of security as some of the games were scheduled to be played at festivals. One of the games was on October 15 between India and Pakistan.

On that day, a lot of Indians will celebrate the first day of the festival of Navratri (the festival consists of nine days). This game will now be played on October 14. Apart from this, India’s last league game against the Netherlands has also been shifted. The game was meant to be played on November 11, but has been shifted a day later.
