The third Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy between India and Australia has been shifted from Kanpur to Hyderabad.

“The Tour, Programme and Fixtures Committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) decided to shift the Test from the Green Park, Kanpur, to the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad, as per the rotation policy of the board,” BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale said in a media release

The change was necessitated because the ongoing construction activity at the Green Park would not have been completed in time for the Test.

The revised match schedule for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy is: First Test (Delhi, Feb 22-26); Second Test (Mohali, Mar 2-6); Third Test (Hyderabad, Mar 14-18), Fourth Test (Chennai, Mar 22-26).
