Earlier India had refused to play a Day-Night Test in Australia during their last tour Down Under in 2018-19. But Kohli on Monday said things will be different next time they tour Australia.

“Look we played the day-night Test here, we were pretty happy with how it went and it has become a very exciting feature of any Test series and we are absolutely up to playing day-night Tests,” Kohli said.

He further added, “We are absolutely up for the challenge and whether its Gabba, Perth doesn’t matter to us. We do have the skillsets now to compete against anyone in the world anywhere in any format of the game.”

Currently India are scheduled to play three ODIs alongside four Tests in Australia later this year.

Meanwhile, Indian broadcaster Sony Pictures Sports Network (SPSN) has also implored Indian cricket’s governing body to agree to a day-night Test in Australia next summer following Kohli’s statement.

“With India touring Australia, they should definitely look at one or two Tests because timing definitely makes a difference,” Sony’s head of sport Rajesh Kaul said.
