Third Cricket Test and Ashura

It was saddening, almost shocking for me, to see that the third test which commences on the 26th of January will have its last two days on the 9th and 10th of Muharram. Being a Muslim nation, I think the team could at least have requested the concerned authorities to move the test forward by a day or two. The 10th of Muharram is no ordinary day and it shouldn't be marked as such. I pity those who do not treat it as that and then wonder why the Muslim World, collectively, is facing the hardships it is facing today.
