No day-night Test during Australia tour, Team India tells CoA

Adelaide loses international cricket on Australia Day

Australia's men's team begin a big summer of cricket on November 4 with the first of three one-day internationals against South Africa, followed by the Gold Coast T20 clash.

"There has been no formal discussion as yet with the players on the day-night Test, but the general consensus among players is that they are not yet accustomed to it".

CA released its full summer global schedule on Monday but could not confirm it would continue its recent tradition of pink-ball Tests in the clash at Adelaide Oval from December 6.

SACA CEO Keith Bradshaw says he is hearing "positive things" about holding the first ever day-night test between Australia and India at Adelaide Oval later this year.

SACA described the schedule as a "great result for South Australian cricket", despite Adelaide losing out on the now shaky tradition of hosting worldwide cricket on Australia Day. Given that a pink ball Test match against India is becoming increasingly unlikely, Australia might host a Day-Night Test against Windies in October.

There are now only 19 countries with which Taiwan, or the Republic of China as it self-identifies, has formal relations. He said he hoped that cooperation in the commerce, tourism and financing sectors would increase.

The move is being seen as a further slide down Australia's cricket stadium.

"The CoA spoke to Ravi Shastri (the Indian team head coach) on 12 April and Shastri categorically mentioned that he has consulted with the team and the team is not ready to play pink-ball cricket just now".

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.

Exposure to pink-ball is a must before playing day-night cricket as the pink Kookaburra tends to swing quite a lot under the lights.

The second Test, which is scheduled for December 14-18, will be the first time that a Test match will be played at the Perth Stadium.

The Gabba test, which falls during Australia Day celebrations, is a reminder that the venue is no longer in the same league as those in rival states.

With Steve Smith and David Warner serving suspensions over the ball-tampering incident in South Africa, the Indian cricket team feels that this is their best chance to win a Test series Down Under for the first time.

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

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

After the Test series, India will remain in Australia for three ODIs at the SCG, Adelaide Oval, and the MCG.
