Indian cricket team denies to play pink-ball Test on Australia tour

All three matches will be broadcast live. File

CA released its full summer worldwide 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.

"This broadcast package is set to break Irish sporting records, as we anticipate that the T20I series against India alone will be the biggest worldwide TV audience of any event - sporting or otherwise - ever staged in Ireland", he said.

Adelaide has hosted four Day-Night Tests so far in the last three years - against New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan and England - and are still hoping to stage another match under lights against India.

Perth Stadium will host a Test for the first time when the second match of the series against India is played from December 14 to 18.

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

The series continues with the Boxing Day test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground from December 26 and wraps up in the New Year at the Sydney Cricket Ground (Jan. 3-7).

After Adelaide, the Test series will move on to Perth, and then the two teams will square off with each other in the Boxing Day Test at MCG before ending the Test series with a New Year Test match in Sydney.

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.

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.

November 17 - Australia v South Africa, Carrara Stadium, Gold Coast, T20I.

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