India to Play Test in Adelaide : Sourav Ganguly

The first India-Australia Test match will be a pink-ball affair, to be played under lights in Adelaide, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has confirmed. India’s tour of Australia will commence in November-end – three T20 internationals and as many ODIs will be followed by four Tests.

“Cricket Australia has sent us an itinerary. We will play three T20Is, three ODIs and four Tests there. The first Test will be a day-night game in Adelaide. The dates haven’t been finalised yet,” Ganguly told The Sunday Express after the BCCI’s Apex Council meeting on Saturday. The meeting was held via video conference, with the BCCI president attending it from Kolkata.

The meeting also discussed the plans to organise domestic cricket this season against the backdrop of a Covid surge in the country. As of now, the BCCI hopes to have a truncated domestic season.
