    The Indian cricket board has postponed a one-day series in Zimbabwe planned for June because of a tight schedule, secretary Niranjan Shah announced.

    "We will have it after the IPL (Indian Premier League)," he said.

    "Or we'll try to fit it in at a later time. It is a minor thing."

    The series with three ODIs is part of the International Cricket Council's (ICC) Future Tours programme.

    India, currently hosting South Africa for a test series, have a packed schedule until early next year, starting with the 44-day IPL due to begin on April 18.

    The IPL, featuring a majority of the game's leading international players, will be followed by a one-day tri-series in Bangladesh also involving Pakistan from June 8-14.

    India will also feature in the Asia Cup in Pakistan from June 24-July 6 and then tour Sri Lanka.
