India likely to play day-night Test in Australia
“India are most likely to play a day/night Test during the Australia tour,” a source inside BCCI told PTI on Sunday.
While India had refused to play a day-night Test against the same opposition in Adelaide when they toured Australia in 2018/19, India skipper Virat Kohli asserted last month that his team was ready to play a pink-ball Test anywhere in 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 and we’re open to playing day-night Tests,” said Kohli.
Day-night Test is nothing new for Virat Kohli’s men, as they have already played one such Test against Bangladesh in November at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. In that match, the hosts made light work of the Tigers, as they picked up a comfortable win by an innings and 46 runs.
However, first thing first. Team India will play a two-match Test series against New Zealand, with the first one scheduled to be held in Wellington from February 21.
