The Asian Football Confederation has accepted AIFF’s request to postpone the match and the AFC website has updated that the match will be played on October 11.

Reports, however, said that it was done because the Indian cricket team would be playing a Twenty20 International against Australia in Guwahati on October 10 and the broadcaster, which is telecasting both the football and cricket matches almost at the same time, wanted the postponement.
