Australia optimistic about India's participation in the Day-Night Test

Adelaide Oval won't host an ODI on Australia Day next year while the fate of the day-night Test remains in doubt

CA has again offered to play the BCCI for day-night matches. Given that a pink ball Test match against India is becoming increasingly unlikely, Australia might host a Day-Night Test against Windies in October.

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.

While the nation is arrested in the IPL fever, Cricket Australia has announced the schedule for India-Australia series.

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

Australia and India play their second test at the new Perth Stadium in Burswood, across the Swan river from the city's traditional test venue, the WACA.

Cricket Australia were hoping to convince the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to play a day-night Test at Adelaide in India's tour of Australia later this year but the Indian players and team management have said that they are not ready yet to play pink ball cricket.

A start time for that clash is yet to be confirmed, with Indian officials reportedly reluctant to agree to a day-night Test.




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

Perth Stadium will host a Test match for the first time when it hosts the second Test against India from December 14 to 18.

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.

Canberra's Manuka Oval will then host its first test match from February 1 when the home side meet Sri Lanka in their second and final fixture.

Meanwhile, Gold Coast, which was venue for this year's Commonwealth Games, will be staging its first-ever global game when Australia host South Africa for a one-off T20I on November 17.

"The [PM's XI] game is being played earlier in the year than previous years which will allow for a true representative team without global or Big Bash League commitments preventing players from being involved".
