Cricket Australia hopeful that India agree to day-night Test

Cricket Australia confirmed on Monday that Adelaide Oval will be the venue for the series-opening test against India but has yet to strike an agreement with the Indian board (BCCI) on staging the match under lights.

Canberra's Manuka Oval will host its maiden Test when Australia round out their home summer of cricket in game two against Sri Lanka from February 1.

"This coming summer will see three great cricketing nations right in our backyard, with New Zealand, Sri Lanka and South Africa all set to play at Manuka Oval", Mr French said. Apart from the Test series, India will also play three ODIs and as many T20Is.

The T20 worldwide at Metricon Stadium on November 17 will follow Australia's three one-dayers against the touring Proteas in Perth, Adelaide and Hobart.

The move is being seen as a further slide down Australia's cricket stadium. They also haven't given their consent for the Day-Night Test against the Windies later this year.

Mr French said that after the success of the women's Ashes matches in Canberra past year, where Canberra had the largest crowd of the series, Cricket ACT was ecstatic to again host the Australian women's cricket team.
