Kolkata Knight Riders’ home IPL match against Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday was moved forward by a day to April 16, while the Gujarat Titans-Delhi Capitals match in Ahmedabad was also postponed by the BCCI which gave no reason for this decision. PTI reported on Monday that the KKR-RR match of the Indian Premier League 2024 is going to be postponed due to Ram Navami, but the Board did not specify any reason for the postponement of matches on these two dates. “The match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals, which was scheduled to take place on April 17, 2024 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, will now be played the day before, on April 16, 2024.

“The Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad was earlier scheduled to host the match between Gujarat Titans and Delhi Capitals on April 16, 2024. The match will now be played on April 17, 2024,” the BCCI said in a statement.

It has been learned that the Kolkata Police have expressed their inability to provide adequate security cover for what will be KKR’s third home match of the 17th IPL season, just three days after hosting the Lucknow Super Giants.

Bengal is also expected to vote on April 19 in the first phase of the seven-phase general elections. Voting in Kolkata will take place on June 1.

The CAB had proposed that the match be brought forward by one day (April 16) or pushed back 24 hours to April 18.

KKR is currently in Visakhapatnam for a match against Delhi Capitals on Wednesday.
