India Could Play First Day-Night Test Against Australia Next Year

Day Night Test Cricket

If all going well then it could be possible that India might play its first ever day-night test match against Australia when India tour Australia at the end of next year.

Australia Cricket Board chief James Sutherland said on Sunday that they are confident that India will agree to play one day-night test match at Adelaide at the end of next year.

“I would anticipate there’s not going to be too much problem there,” Sutherland told ABC Radio.

“As we’ve discussed at ICC level, it’s very much in the hands of the home country to make judgments on what they think is best. Certainly, it’s pretty well telegraphed that from our perspective we’d be playing at least one day-night Test match every summer.

“Certainly India, we would expect to draw a bigger crowd. That will be the first four Tests of the summer. It’s not all about that, it’s also about how it fits, there’s considerations like weather in different parts of the country at different times of the year. They’re all the things we need to balance and make a call on over the course of the next few weeks before announcing that final schedule,” Sutherland said further.

India never played a day-night test yet and they are the only team which did not play a day-night test. Other major test playing nation already played day-night test matches for a once at least.

India will tour Australia for the four test match series with Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, and Adelaide expected to be the final venue for the test series.
