Statement on Adelaide Day-Night Test against India


May 08, 2018

Cricket Australia has made the following statement today in regards to a potential Day-Night Test against India at Adelaide Oval.

A Cricket Australia Spokesperson said: “We can confirm that we have received advice from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) that it is not prepared to participate in a proposed Day-Night Test in Adelaide this summer.

As a result, we can now confirm this Test match will be a Day format.

“Whilst we appreciate some Adelaide fans may be disappointed, we know how popular the Adelaide Test is and look forward to hosting India there in December.

“We are committed to hosting at least one Day-Night Test each home summer as part of our continued focus to grow Test cricket, and we are excited about the Day-Night Test against Sri Lanka at the Gabba in January.

Tickets for all Men’s International matches will go on sale from 8 June, with Women’s International matches on sale from 3 August.

Fans wanting priority access to tickets should visit www.cricket.com.au/acf to sign-up from 18 May.
