India will begin their Australia tour with a three-match T20I series from November 21 to 25, and then play four Tests in Adelaide (December 6-10), Perth (December 14-18), Melbourne (December 26-30) and Sydney (January 3-7).
As it turns out, Indian cricket team head coach Ravi Shastri has conveyed to the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) that Kohli's men are unwilling to play the day-night Test in Adelaide. However, despite India's denial, Cricket Australia (CA) is still hopeful that they will be able to convince the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
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.
The series continues with the Boxing Day test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground from December 26 and wraps up in the New Year at the Sydney Cricket Ground (Jan. 3-7).
However, with the players making their intentions clear, the question of playing the pink-ball Test in Adelaide doesn't arise, a CoA member told The Indian Express.
India are among the teams to not have played Test cricket under the lights ever since the inception of the format back in 2015 when Australia and New Zealand locked horns in Adelaide. India have never played a floodlit match.
