One practise day too many

So the BCCI has gone ahead and placed a request with Cricket Australia to reduce the duration of the practise game between the 2nd and the 3rd tests from 3 days to 2. And here we were wondering if India wasn't short of practise matches already. Just in case you are thinking that this wisdom may have been prompted by a concern for sufficient rest between the two test matches, Team India would have got a proper 3 days rest before the next game began at the WACA.
New Year Test: 2nd to 6th Jan, Sydney Cricket Ground
ACT Invitation XI vs India : 10th to 12th Jan, Manuka Oval in Canberra
3rd Test: 16th to 20th Jan, WACA Perth
...and Cricket Australia lost no time in accepting the Indian Board's request.

Perhaps... the indians required some time to shoot commercials, song sequences or do a duet record with Bret lee.
