The schedule for Australia's four-Test tour of India in February and March has been amended, with Hyderabad to now host the third match of the series.
 

The fixture from March 14 to 18 has been switched to the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium as construction on the original venue at Green Park in Kanpur will not have finished, the Board of Control for Cricket in India have announced.

The BCCI said in a statement: "The change was necessitated because the ongoing construction activity at the Green Park, Kanpur, would not have been completed in time for the Test".
