The Green Park stadium in Kanpur is set to host the test matches between India and New Zealand. Earlier, two IPL matches were also played in the green park stadium.
The test match would be the first, which is to be played between the two sides in the forthcoming series. The test match would be played in Kanpur from September 22-26.
Rajeev Shukla, Indian Premier League (IPL) Commissioner and secretary of the Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association (UPCA) who recently visited the Green Park stadium to review the preparations for the match, also informed that a T20 format match between England and India will also be played in Kanpur in February 2017.
However, the dates are yet to be decided. The UPCA is making special special arrangements to attract spectators.
10 per cent of tickets were being reserved for school children and free entry for the differently abled. A modern pavilion is under construction at the stadium and is likely to be completed soon.
