India unlikely to play day-night Test in Adelaide

India unlikely to play day-night Test in Adelaide

The day-night Test match idea was first introduced by Australia and it means that the match will continue to be played under floodlights in the evening.

The statement comes after CA released its entire 2018-19 worldwide fixture, comprising of 22 matches across the formats, without confirming whether it would continue its recent tradition of hosting a pink-ball match at Adelaide Oval. "So a question of playing a day-night Test match in Adelaide just doesn't arise", a CoA was quoted as saying by The Indian Express. "We're not across the line yet but I'm feeling quietly confident that we will end up with a day-night test".

Adelaide will host two of six One Day Internationals to be played by the men's side: against South Africa on November 9 and India on January 15.

India will begin its Australia tour with a three-match T20 series from November 21 to 25, before competing in the four Tests.

Australian Cricketers' Association CEO Alistair Nicholson welcomed the increased scheduling of women's cricket.

Global cricket will run from September to February this summer in a significantly revamped schedule that will include visits from South Africa, India, Sri Lanka and New Zealand.

The newly built Perth Stadium will make its debut as a Test venue when it hosts the second Test.

And the Tests keep coming, with the 'Gabba getting a belated match from January 24-28 between Australia and Sri Lanka.

The series against India also promises a celebration of Indian culture.

For the first time, Test Cricket will be held at the state-of-the-art Perth Stadium and Canberra's Manuka Oval.

Metricon will host a T20 game between Australia and South Africa in November in a decision which will be formally announced at a press conference later today.

The Carrara venue, which is the home ground of the AFL's Gold Coast Suns and recently staged the athletics at the Commonwealth Games, may be considered for use during the 2018/19 Big Bash League. The 16-day gap between the fourth Test against India and the first Test against Sri Lanka - filled by only three ODIs - could give Australia's global players a window to take part in as many BBL games as possible, while the tournament's closing stages could be held after the end of the Test season.
