BCCI has given a nod to the Indian cricket team for playing a Day-Night Test match in Australia when they tour the Kangaroo land, later this year. India is scheduled to play 4 Test matches between the period of December and January. Out of which, 1 match will be played under lights. The venue is not decided yet, however; Brisbane or Adelaide is likely to host the game.
Previously, Cricket Australia offered BCCI to play 2 Day-Night Test matches but the president of BCCI Sourav Ganguly feels that 2 matches will be more than enough. Moreover, BCCI has also highlighted that India will play a Day-Night Test match against England in the refurbished Sardar Patel Stadium, Motera Ahmedabad- which, after the renovation, will become the biggest cricket stadium in the world.
Sourav Ganguly said that he has also talked to the Indian captain Virat Kohli and he has accepted the offer from CA but he wants more time for practice. Following the 4 Test matches against Australia, India will play its last Test series against England in the inaugural edition of the ICC Test Championship. Therefore, team India has very important matches coming up and the board cannot afford to encumber the players with the extra workload.
