Australia hoping to convince India to play 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

Adelaide Oval will host the first Test match in the coming summer's cricket schedule but will miss out on global matches over the Australia Day weekend.

A much-awaited Australian summer will see the country hosting India this time around and the tournament naturally headlines the Australian 2018-19 worldwide schedule.

Cricket Australia (CA) said it was continuing discussions with the BCCI with a view to playing their first day-night test in Adelaide from December 6-10. While releasing Australia's global playing schedule today, CA Chief Executive Officer James Sutherland said his Board is in discussions with the BCCI to convince them to play a day-night Test in Adelaide.

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

There has been talk of making the first Test of the series, to be played at Adelaide Oval, a day-night affair, but it's yet to be confirmed.

" Overall, there are more worldwide matches being played across more locations around the country than in previous years, and we believe this program has something for all cricket fans".

The newly built Perth Stadium will make its debut as a Test venue when it hosts the second Test.

Apart from the Test series, India will also play three ODIs and as many T20Is.

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.

And the Tests keep coming, with the 'Gabba getting a belated match from January 24-28 between Australia and Sri Lanka.

Sky Sports has secured the rights to broadcast ball-by-ball coverage of Ireland's inaugural Test - against Pakistan - and the T20I series against India.

The two-Test tour against Sri Lanka concludes at Manuka Oval in Canberra in a match to be staged from February 1 to 5. The tour will kick off in Australia from November 21 and will start with T20 clashes.

"Our men's worldwide season structure changes slightly this summer, with one-day and T20 global matches against South Africa and India in November".

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

In a big coup for the Big Bash finals, all cricketers will be available to their franchises once the global fixtures finish up in the first week of February.
