Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The buffering capacity of the solution will decrease and there will be residual acidic H(+) ions willbe free in the system. This will casue pH to become 6.30. (Slighltly acidic buffer) 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
