The venues for Australia’s upcoming Test series in India could change after the nation’s Supreme Court handed down recommendations for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to implement as part of a reform to increase transparency amongst the sport’s associations.

According to the ruling by the Supreme Court, any association that fails to abide by the recommendations would forfeit their opportunity to host a match during the series.

The four venues named to host the series in February and March of next year are Pune, Bangalore, Ranchi and Dharamsala, none of which are currently compliant according to News Corp.

Speaking to the local media, a Supreme Court spokesperson said, “Starting with the series against Australia, matches will be played only in those stadiums whose associations have complied with the panel’s recommendations.”

Government intervention has come about after a string of corruption scandals rocked the Indian Premier League last year which led to Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals being suspended for two years.
