Adelaide Oval won't host an ODI on Australia Day next year while the fate of the day-night Test remains in doubt

The Gabba Test however has been shunted to the Australia Day weekend in January when Sri Lanka will play a day-night fixture in the first Test of a two-Test series featuring another game in Canberra.

Adelaide Oval won't host an ODI on Australia Day next year, while the fate of the day-night Test remains in doubt.

However, a report from India last week indicated they may play one of two home Tests against West Windies in October under lights.

"The CoA spoke to Ravi Shastri (the Indian team head coach) on 12 April and Shastri categorically mentioned that he has consulted with the team and the team is not ready to play pink-ball cricket just now".

And more gaps in the men's worldwide schedule - which begins with limited-overs fixtures - will allow some of the game's Test and one-day global stars to make more appearances in the Big Bash League. Hence, the Indian cricket team have made their intentions clear of playing only with the red ball in the longest format of the sport.

CA announced the schedule of Australia's home summer on Monday without confirming a start time for the Adelaide Test.

Cricket Australia has released its schedule with Australia to play Sri Lanka in a Test at the Gabba starting on January 24, meaning Adelaide misses out on the Australia Day slot. Past year they got the better of England in the inaugural day-night Ashes Test at the Adelaide Oval. The Proteas lost by seven wickets.

Tests in Perth (December 14-18), Melbourne (December 26-30) and Sydney (January 3-7) follow, before three one-day internationals against India in January.

Canberra's Manuka Oval will then host its first test match from February 1 when the home side meet Sri Lanka in their second and final fixture.

I hope so. Of the top eight or nine teams, it's only Bangladesh and India that haven't committed and I've always said it is part of the future of Test cricket.

Warren Deutrom, chief executive of Cricket Ireland, confirmed the details of the largest broadcast rights package in Irish cricket history, which incorporates match coverage on networks in countries including the USA and Australia.
