Green Park Stadium was originally scheduled to host the third Test between India and Australia

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".
