Indian board (BCCI) chairman Lalit Modi has said that the two-Test series between India and England next month will go ahead, although the second Test will be moved away from Mumbai.

A series of terrorist attacks in Mumbai led to the cancellation of the final two One Day Internationals, the Champions League 2020 and the ICL 20s World Series while England's Performance Programme squad is also to return home.

"The two Test matches will definitely go ahead," Modi told Sky Sports News. "The Mumbai match will be moved."

England were due to play the first match in Ahmedabad from December 11th and the second is scheduled to begin on December 19th.
