Indian Cricket Team & Management Refused to Play Day-Night Test in Adelaide

  • The sun sets over the first day-night Test hosted at Adelaide Oval

According to the current ICC Playing Conditions, a home side can only hold a Day-Night Test "with the agreement of the Visiting Board".

India and Bangladesh are the only two current Test-playing nations to have avoided playing pink-ball cricket at the worldwide level.

India have rejected Australia's request to play a day-night Test in Adelaide later this year, it was confirmed on Tuesday.

Cricket Australia had pencilled in the December 6-10 Test in Adelaide as a pink-ball match but India baulked at playing under floodlights.

On the other hand, Indian Cricket Team is in very good form and many fans and pundits believe that in the absence of Steve Smith and David Warner, they have a very good chance to register their first ever Test series win in Australia.

For this summer at least, the day-night Test at the Adelaide Oval is off.

Choudhary has written to CA chief executive James Sutherland, stating: "I am directed to say by the Committee of Administrators that India would begin to play in the format only in about a year's time".


Fox Sports and Seven would have been hoping the ratings bump associated with day-night Test cricket would assist in a smooth transition to the joint broadcasters.

Earlier in May, Sutherland told Australia's SEN Radio, "I think everyone in world cricket knows that, to be frank, I think (India) want to come out here and beat us".

Australia will play five one-day internationals and one Twenty20 against England in June, before taking part in a Twenty20 tri-series tour of Zimbabwe that also involves Pakistan.

It is the first match of a two-Test series against Sri Lanka.

India are yet to play a pink-ball Test, and their unfamiliarity with Test cricket under lights as well as Australia's formidable home record in day-night Tests played a part in influencing the management's call.

"We are, however, also positive that our Test match next summer will still be a big victor with SACA members and cricket fans".
