#1
Quote:MUMBAI: The final of the Hockey World Cup takes place on 13 March 2010 from 6:30 pm -8 pm, clashing with the third season of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

In order to accommodate the final, the IPL Governing Council has decided to prepone a match on that day. IPL chairman and commissioner Lalit Modi says that the match between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals will start at 3 pm on 13 March 2010 instead of 4 pm.

"The fact that the hockey World Cup is taking place in India is a matter of national pride. The BCCI does what it can to promote other sports. This rescheduling on our part will ensure that the final of the hockey World Cup will not have a competing product. This will be a Super Saturday where viewers can feast on cricket and hockey."
