The Ranji Trophy match between Uttar Pradesh and Vadodara has been shifted to Greater Noida from Kanpur due to lack of accommodation in the city.

The match is scheduled to begin from December 1.

Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association (UPCA) Director PD Pathak said the city hotels are packed due to lot of marriages in that period, forcing them to shift the venue for the match.

UP coach Rizwan Shamshad is in Greater Noida to assess the conditions at the new venue.

“There are nice hotels here and it is a good stadium. The pitch though requires some work,” Shamshad said.

The match between UP and Punjab will be held at Kanpur’s Green Park Stadium as scheduled from November 23-26.
