Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023: Indore Set To Host India vs Australia 3rd Test


Due to outfield issues, the Board of Control for Cricket in India has decided to move the third Test match between India and Australia from Dharamsala. The Border-Gavaskar Trophy’s third match will now take place between March 1 and March 5 at Indore’s Holkar Stadium.

India is currently leading the 4-match test series 1-0. Since the Sri Lanka T20I series in 2022, the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association has not hosted an international match. The lone Test match held there was for the 2017 Border Gavaskar Trophy, which India won by an eight-wicket margin.

The game could not be played due to poor outfield conditions, the BCCI stated in the early hours of Monday, February 13.

“The third Test of the Mastercard Australia tour of India for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, originally scheduled to take place at the HPCA Stadium, Dharamsala from 1st to 5th March has now been moved to Holkar Stadium, Indore,” the BCCI confirmed in their press release.

“Owing to harsh winter conditions in the region, the outfield lacks sufficient grass density and will need some time to develop fully,” the release further read.
