Australia wait for India over day-night Test

Australia wait for India over day-night Test

GOLD Coast's Metricon Stadium will host a major global match for the first time but the Gabba has been downgraded as a Test venue in cricket's new summer schedule. The clash between India and Australia will end on December 6.

- CA still "working with" BCCI re making Adelaide Test a day-night match.

Australia has hosted New Zealand, South Africa and England in day-night tests at Adelaide Oval, winning all three of the pink ball matches.

But they are expected to play a day-night Test against West Indies later this year, boosting Australia's chances for the clash in Adelaide.

The chief executive continued: "We've only every had three people who've played 100 - Dan Vettori (112), Stephen Fleming (111) and Brendon McCullum (101) - so that feels about right".

The newly built Perth Stadium will make its debut as a Test venue when it hosts the second Test.

India will begin their Australia tour with a three-match T20 series from November 21 to 25, before competing in the four Tests in Adelaide (December 6-10), Perth (December 14-18), Melbourne (December 26-30) and Sydney (January 3-7).

Meg Lanning's side play three T20 fixtures against New Zealand in September and October and then three one-day internationals against the same opponents in February and March.

Merger talks between United Kingdom supermarket chains Sainsbury's and ASDA (Walmart)
Roger Burnley, who took over as Asda CEO in January, is a former Sainsbury's executive, working under Coupe. One option is Sainsbury's absorbing Asda stores, while Walmart takes a large stake in the combined group.

Instead the Gabba will host the first of two Tests against Sri Lanka, a day-nighter from January 24 which runs over the Australia Day long weekend.

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.

The Gold Coast is to host global cricket for the first time, staging a T20 game between Australia and South Africa.

The T20 global at Carrara on November 17 will follow Australia's three one-dayers against the touring Proteas in Perth, Adelaide and Hobart.

The game between Australia and South Africa will be the only T20 of the limited overs series against the Proteas.

The T20I will be followed by 4 test matches and one One Day International.

"This will be a win for fans, with reduced overlap with the Big Bash", Sutherland said.
