Adelaide set to host opening Test on India's tour of Australia

Reuters

The limited-overs cricket continues when India play three T20 fixtures in Australia in November, before the first Test between the two nations starts in Adelaide on December 6.

Brisbane's cricket stadium the Gabba is in decline as a test venue after being overlooked for Australia's upcoming series against India. Conditions in a day-night Test might tilt the balance in the hosts' favour, giving them the momentum for the series. And Australia still have some of the finest pace bowlers around such as Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazelwood and Pat Cummins. They will rather concentrate on playing red-ball cricket only (in the longest format) for now.

BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary reportedly spoke in favor of the twilight Test last week, saying he had consulted the team management, selectors and the office bearers over the issue. "And that's why there is a proposal to convert one of the two Test matches against the West Indies later this year to a day/night Test".

Trump is expected to meet Kim in the coming weeks, and has been credited with getting the leader of the rogue state to the table. They also agreed to achieve a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula, but failed to produce specific time frames and disarmament steps.

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. "So a question of playing a day-night Test match in Adelaide just doesn't arise", Indian Express quoted a member of Committee of Administrators (COA).

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.

Cricket Australia's hopes of kicking off the India series at Adelaide with the day-night Test is unlikely to get a green signal from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). They also haven't given their consent for the Day-Night Test against the Windies later this year. South Africa were initially reluctant to play their 2016 Test under lights at Adelaide, fearing the hosts would have an unfair advantage. 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.

They also asked Jackson to issue an order protecting Manafort from future prosecutions by Mueller. The ruling does not affect the criminal proceedings against Manafort in Washington and Virginia.

"I think in the foreseeable future we are going to see Big Bash cricket here", Sutherland said.
