The venue of the third Test between India and Australia will change
The third match of the series was to be played in Dharamshala.
New Delhi. The 4-match Test series between India and Australia has started. The first match of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy was played in Nagpur in which Team India won by an innings and 132 runs. Before this match, there was a lot of ruckus in the Australian media regarding the pitch. It is now reported that a decision has been taken to change the venue of the third Test match of the series. This match is to be played in Dharamshala.
The second match of the Test series being played between India and Australia is to be played in Delhi. After this, both the teams were to play the third Test match in Dharamshala, but there is information about changes in the schedule regarding this. It is being told that the stadium of Dharamshala is not completely ready to host this match, due to which it will be shifted to some other place.
According to InsideSport, the BCCI official said, “It is very unfortunate that the match will have to be shifted from Dharamshala. By the time the match is about to start, this place will not be ready. HPCA has done everything to prepare this place to host the match but the outfield here will take some more time to reach the level of international match. Talking about the current situation, it is not fit to host any international match at the moment.
Where can this competition shift?
The BCCI official said, “It is really unfortunate that Dharamshala will not be able to host the Test match. Once the work here is completed, we will definitely try to host some matches before the ODI World Cup. As far as the third test match is concerned, Mohli is ready to host this match and we have options of Vizag, Indore and Pune also. We will announce it soon.
