The Indian cricket team is set to tour Australia for a four-match Test series in end of this year.
The series is part of the ICC World Test Championship.
Meanwhile, on Sunday, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly confirmed India will play a Day-Night Test against the Aussies in the series.
This will be India's second D/N Test ever.
Team India had refused to play a Day-Night Test against the Aussies in Adelaide when they toured the nation back in 2018/19.
However, as Ganguly became BCCI president, the side played their maiden Day-Night Test against Bangladesh in November at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
It was India and Bangladesh's maiden D/N Test.
India won the match by an innings and 46 runs.
Last month, Indian captain Virat Kohli stressed that his team is ready to play a pink-ball Test anywhere in Australia.
He said this in the eve of India's three-match ODI series opener at home against Australia.
"We're ready and up for the challenge - whether it's Gabba, Perth... it doesn't matter to us. It's become a very exciting feature of any Test series."
Australia have been unstoppable as far Day-Night Tests are concerned.
The Aussies have played seven D/N Test matches so far.
They have a 100% record. Recently, they hammered Pakistan by an innings and 48 runs in the D/N Test at the Adelaide.
That was followed by a 296-run victory against New Zealand at the Perth Stadium in December 2019.
India have won all seven Tests so far in the World Test Championship.
They have 360 points from a total of three series played.
Next up for Team India is a two-Test series against New Zealand away from home, starting February 21.
Meanwhile, Australia are second with 296 points from three series.
They face Bangladesh next.
The Australia-India series is therefore of utmost significance.
