Cricket Australia announced its domestic international schedule on Thursday. In the midst of Coronavirus, when all major sporting events around the world are postponed or canceled, Australia hopes that Team India will take a full tour (T20, Test and ODI) to host it. It has also been made clear in this program of Australia that India will play the second Test match of this Test series with Pink Ball (Day-Night) in Adelaide. This will be the first time that Team India will play a pink ball day-night test match with a team on foreign soil.
Earlier, when Team India went on a tour of Australia in 2018-19, the Australian Cricket Board offered it a day-night test. But then his offer was rejected by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Meanwhile, Saurabh Ganguly, the former captain of Team India became the new captain of Team India and he had talked to the current captain of Team India, Virat Kohli in this context and persuaded him for the day-night test.
