Though, now, India will not play any day/night game in the coming season, which starts with historic Test match against Afghanistan. "There, we will also deliver a large-scale community festival in partnership with the Victorian Government, which will be a terrific celebration of Indian culture".

Canberra's Manuka Oval and the new Perth Stadium will host Test matches for the first time, while the Gold Coast's Metricon Stadium will host a Twenty20 fixture between Australia and South Africa.

India's tour will kick off with a three-match Twenty20 global series in November after Australia start the home summer with four limited overs matches against South Africa.

India will tour Down Under in the winter (Australian summer) and the first Test of the four-match series is scheduled to be played in Adelaide from December 6.


Talking about the structural changes in the global season in Australia this time around, Sutherland added: "Our men's worldwide season structure changes slightly this summer, with one-day and T20 global matches against South Africa and India in November". As per a report in Indian Express, Indian players were asked about playing the Test with a pink ball which they categorically refused to.

The T20 worldwide at Carrara on November 17 will follow Australia's three one-dayers against the touring Proteas in Perth, Adelaide and Hobart.

Cricket Australia (CA) has confirmed that their opening match of the Test series against India will be held at the Adelaide Oval, however, they are still trying to convince the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to play it under lights.

Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland said earlier in the summer the Gabba's place in the national pecking order had fallen and this schedule is proof of that.


Canberra's Manuka Oval will host its maiden Test when Australia rounds out its home summer of cricket in game two against Sri Lanka from February 1.

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. From playing in front of a few hundred a few short years ago, to playing last year at Lord's Cricket Ground in front of 25,000 - and now we are set to take that next step.

I hope so. Of the top eight or nine teams, it's only Bangladesh and India that haven't committed and I've always said it is part of the future of Test cricket.

The Cricket Australia, on the other hand, is believed to be pushing the ICC to include pink-ball Tests in the Championship roster.
