The second Test between India and New Zealand would be played at Hyderabad's Rajiv Gandhi stadium at Uppal from November 12-16 instead of the originally designated venue, Kanpur.

"Hyderabad will be the new Test centre and has been allotted the second Test against New Zealand," the Cricket Board said on Wednesday.

The allotment of the Test match to Hyderabad and the inability expressed by Punjab Cricket Association to host an ODI against the visitors has necessitated more changes in the tour itinerary, according to the BCCI.

The second and third ODIs, scheduled at Hyderabad and Mohali, will be played instead at Jaipur and Vadodara.

The revised itinerary is:
Oct 31: New Zealand team arrives.
Nov 4-8: 1st Test at Ahmedabad
Nov 12-16: 2nd Test at Hyderabad
Nov 20-24: 3rd Test at Nagpur
Nov 28: 1st ODI at Guwahati
Dec 1: 2nd ODI at Jaipur
Dec 4: 3rd ODI at Vadodara
Dec 7: 4th ODI at Bangalore
Dec 10: 5th ODI at Chennai.
