The third Test between India and Australia in March next year, originally scheduled at Kanpur, will now be held at Hyderabad from March 14 to 18.
According to Board secretary Sanjay Jagdale, the Tour, Programme and Fixtures Committee decided to shift the Test as per rotation policy of the Board. “The change was necessitated because the ongoing construction activity at the Green Park (Kanpur) would not have been completed in time for the Test,” said Jagdale.
Revised schedule: First Test: Delhi (February 22 to 26); Second Test: Mohali (March 2 to 6); Third Test: Hyderabad (March 14 to 18); Fourth Test: Chennai (March 22 to 26). — Special Correspondent
