India-Aus third Test shifts to Hyderabad
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday said the third Test of the Airtel Series against Australia has been shifted to Hyderabad. "The Tour, Programme and Fixtures Committtee of the BCCI has decided to shift the third Test of the forthcoming AIRTEL Test series between India and Australia from the Green Park, Kanpur to the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad," said BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale in a statement.
"This change is as per the rotation policy of the Board," he said.
"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.
The revised match-schedule is as follows:
AIRTEL SERIES FOR THE BORDER-GAVASKAR TROPHY, 2012-13
First Test - Delhi - 22 February 2013 to 26 February 2013
Second Test - Mohali - 2 March 2013 to 6 March 2013
Third Test - Hyderabad - 14 March 2013 to 18 March 2013
Fourth Test - Chennai - 22 March 2013 to 26 March 2013
