New Delhi: The BCCI on Tuesday swapped the venues for the second and the third Test matches against New Zealand while the first match will be hosted in Kanpur from September 22. The board had earlier announced Indore’s Holkar Stadium as the venue for the second Test from September 30 to October 4 and Kolkata’s Eden Gardens for the third and final match from October 8 to 12.
But with Durga Puja celebrations clashing with the third Test, the iconic Eden Gardens will host the second Test from September 30 while the third match will be played in Indore from October 8. There were no changes for the other fixures. Dharamsala will host the first ODI on October 16 and Delhi’s Ferozeshah Kotla the second on October 19. Mohali will host the third game on October 23 while the fourth and fifth matches will be played at Ranchi and Visakhapatnam on October 26 and 29 respectively.
