Australia Wants India to Play Two Day-Night Tests

Australia will soon request to have two Day-Night fixtures with India, who claimed a convincing win in their first Pink Ball Test over Bangladesh.

Cricket matches between India and Australia are one of the most highly-anticipated matchups, especially in Test cricket. The hot rivalry between the two teams has been one of the best in the past decades. These two powerhouses deliver intense and thrilling action on the field.

Virat Kohli and Team India are set to travel Down Under to continue their rivalry as the two teams will play for the traditional four-match Border Gavaskar Trophy in November 2020. There are rumours that the four-match series will mark the first time that two Day-Night Test matches will be held.

Melbourne and Sydney are set to hold the traditional Boxing Day and New Year Tests respectively. There is still contention between Perth, Brisbane, and Adelaide Oval on which will host the two Day-Night fixtures.

There is no confirmation yet from both sides, but both councils are set to meet on the sidelines of the three-match ODI series between the two teams next year.

‘Negotiations have not yet begun, but we’ll mention that when we’re over there in January talking during the one-day series. As you build that trust and build that relationship you have that chat’, said CA chairman Earl Eddings. ‘I’ve got no doubt they’ll consider playing one and maybe even more day-night Test matches. But that’s down the track to when we catch up with them in January’.

India is set to play the West Indies today for their T20 series. India has -344.83 on the odds while West Indies has 280. Make sure to stay updated on the latest cricket odds with Betwala.
