CA confirms Adelaide Test will be a day affair

10 May 2018

Cricket Australia had lobbied India to play a day-night Test at Adelaide Oval, which has hosted pink-ball cricket for the past three seasons.

CA had hoped it would continue its recent tradition of day-night Tests in Adelaide by persuading India to agree to a five-day match under lights.

The moves comes after the BCCI made a determination that their side would benefit from more time before submitting to a pink ball Test and all the natural variations and differences inherent in the differing ball.

The top-ranked team said that they didn´t want to play their first day-night Test during such a high-profile series. It was amid the tactics and patience of "long-form" cricket that players cut their teeth.

Australia were hopeful of again hosting a pink-ball Test in South Australia, just as they have done in the past three years.

The game scheduled to be played in December will now be held during normal daylight hours using a traditional red ball. Australia has a great track record at home, having not lost a single Test match under lights.

"It's the way of the future and India may or may not come around to that idea for this tour but I still believe it's the way of the future". With the Indian team management, headed by chief coach Ravi Shastri, intimating the Committee of Administrators (CoA) that the team will take at least 18 months to prepare for the Day/Night Test, acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary was told to pass on the message to CA chief executive James Sutherland.
