Pink ball on ice as India refuses day-night Test
India has refused Australia’s offer of a day/night Test.
Australia has hosted four pink-ball Tests since the inaugural day/nighter against New Zealand in 2015, three in Adelaide and one in Brisbane.
But India has refused to play a Test under lights this summer.
Cricket Australia had lobbied the BCCI to play a day/night Test at Adelaide Oval, however the visiting side has declined.
India and Bangladesh are the only two Test-playing nations yet to play under lights.
Australia will play a day/night Test against Sri Lanka at the Gabba in January.
