The Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) has revised the Duleep Trophy programme by making a few changes in the venues.

The tournament, featuring the five zones and England Lions team, will be held in West Zone centres as scheduled from January 26 to February 23, 2008, according to BCCI's Cricket Operations manager Suru Nayak.

"But there are a few changes. The opening tie between North Zone and South Zone is to be held at Ahmedabad instead of Vadodara, the East v South match has been shifted from Ahmedabad to Mumbai and the England Lions v Central match has been moved from Mumbai to Vadodara," Nayak explained.

The revised schedule is:

January 26-29, 2008: North Zone v South Zone at Ahmedabad; West Zone v Central Zone at Rajkot

February 3-6: East v South at Mumbai; England Lions v Central at Vadodara

February 11-14: North v East at Rajkot; England Lions v West at Vadodara
