Schedule for India's tour of Australia 2018-19 announced
The highly anticipated India's tour of Australia 2018-19 would see the visitors battling in a four-Test duel. Adelaide is set to host the opening Test between the two sides, which would begin from December 6 onwards. The three other Tests will be held in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney respectively. Here is all you need to know.
Will the Adelaide Test be a Day/Night affair?
Reports stated that the BCCI has changed its earlier stance on Day/Night Tests and it is reluctant to play pink ball Test in Australia. However, Aussies want a D/N Test at Adelaide as Cricket Australia chief James Sutherland said that they are working on details and will come with an answer soon. So will BCCI reject CA's proposal? Or will they re-think on it?
