The India vs Australia 3rd Test has been shifted from Dharamshala, a top BCCI official confirmed to Indian Express on Sunday. The Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) had relaid the entire outfield, including the pitch, at the HPCA stadium, one of the most picturesque venues in world cricket, in order to host the Test match. However, a ‘small patch near the square’ is yet to be completed and that is the cause of worry. Usually, when the pitch and the outfield are relaid, the common practice is to test it during a match. But so far that hasn’t happened, the official said. The HPCA is hopeful that the work will be completed in the three weeks that are left before the game.
