The third round-robin match of the Nehru Cup international football tournament between Lebanon and Sri Lanka was on Friday postponed for Saturday after heavy rains that lashed the city made Ambedkar Stadium pitch unplayable.

The match between India and Kyrgyzstan earlier scheduled for tomorrow will be played on Sunday.

All the fixtures drawn earlier will be revised and pushed further by a day which means the final round-robin match will be played on August 29 instead of August 28.
