Australia wants India to play D/N Test at Adelaide

Australia wants India to play D/N Test at Adelaide

Cricket Australia (CA) said it was continuing discussions with the BCCI with a view to playing their first day-night test in Adelaide from December 6-10.

The series will feature three T20 internationals and three one-dayers in Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne, with a match between New Zealand and a Governor-General's XI on February 28.

Cricket Australia confirmed on Monday that Adelaide Oval will be the venue for the series-opening test against India but has yet to strike an agreement with the Indian board (BCCI) on staging the match under lights.

However, with the players making their intentions clear, the question of playing the pink-ball Test in Adelaide doesn't arise, a CoA member told The Indian Express.

Manuka Oval's maiden test match will be the final worldwide match of the summer with Australia playing sixth-ranked Sri Lanka.

A much-awaited Australian summer will see the country hosting India this time around and the tournament naturally headlines the Australian 2018-19 global schedule.

CA chief executive James Sutherland said it was his organisation's preference to use the day-night format for the Adelaide fixture. India haven't played a Test match with the pink ball and they don't want their inexperience to jeopardise their chances in the series.

Stephen Curry Expected To Play In Game 2
All the hype behind the Pelicans came to a screeching halt when the Warriors sonned them in Game 1 without Stephen Curry . Pelicans: The Pelicans' 126-120 win April 7 in Oakland snapped a 10-game losing streak to the Warriors.

In between, the Australia men's team will host a South African limited-overs tour in October-November, and full worldwide tours by India and Sri Lanka that stretch from mid-November to early February.

"On the back of last years' ground-breaking gender equitable MOU which the players fought for, it is right that our female team continues to get the exposure they deserve", he said.

The decision by Cricket Australia reiterates their committment to developing professional cricket on the Gold Coast.

South Africa will play three ODIs from November 4 to 11, and a one-off T20 on November 17, which is the first ever worldwide game at the Metricon Stadium in Gold Coast.

The newly built Perth stadium will also make its debut when India and Australia face-off in second test match of the series.

Instead the Gabba will host the first of two Tests against Sri Lanka, a day-nighter from January 24 which runs over the Australia Day long weekend.
