Team India set to play day-night Test match in Australia: Report

The Men In Blue previously did refuse to play a pink-ball Test match against Australia in Adelaide.

Team India are set to play their first-ever day-night Test match in Australia during their tour later this year according to recent reports.

This is going to the second time India will be playing a pink-ball Test match in their history.

“India is most likely to play a day/night Test during the Australia tour,” a BCCI source close to the developments told PTI.

Back in November last year, India played their very first day-night test against Bangladesh at the iconic Eden Gardens.

The Men In Blue previously did refuse to play a pink-ball Test match against Australia in Adelaide.

Speaking on the topic, Indian skipper Virat Kohli had said: “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 and we’re open to playing day-night Tests.”

Before that, India is set to take on New Zealand in a two-match Test series from February 21 after the Kiwis completed a 3-0 whitewash in the ODIs.
