India are unlikely to play a day/night Test on their tour to Australia later this year with CA chief executive James Sutherland saying the two cricket boards are still working through details.
CA announced their schedule for their home summer on Monday with India slotted in to play four Tests, although the first Test, scheduled for Adelaide, has yet to have a time fixed to it.
Adelaide has hosted a pink-ball Test every year since 2015 but it looks increasingly like the BCCI and CA will not come to an agreement this time around.
Sutherland said: “It is our preference that we play India in a day-night Test match in Adelaide, but we are still working through this detail and hope to have an answer on this in the coming weeks.”
India will headline Australia’s summer of cricket with the Asian side set to play four Tests, including the Boxing Day and New Year matches in Melbourne and Sydney respectively.
Australia will also play South Africa in three ODIs and a one-off T20I in November with all international teams gearing up for next year’s World Cup in the UK.
Sri Lanka will arrive Down Under in January next year and play two Tests, in Brisbane and at the Manuka Oval with the first game set to be a day-night affair at the Gabba.
