  • Adelaide Oval won't host an ODI on Australia Day next year while the fate of the day-night Test remains in doubt

In two months tour of Australia starting on November 21st, India will play 3 T20Is, 4 Tests and wind up the tour by playing 3 ODIs.

The schedule, which will see test cricket played in February for the first time in over 20 years, has been structured to avoid clashing with the domestic "Big Bash" T20 competition, which has proved a bigger drawcard for local fans than some test matches in recent seasons.

The three-match T20 series will be followed by the four Tests at the Adelaide Oval, Perth, Melbourne Cricket Stadium and the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland has hoped that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will agree to play a day-night Test in Adelaide when the Virat Kohli-led side tours Down Under later this year.

Canberra's Manuka Oval and the new Perth Stadium will host Test matches for the first time, while the Gold Coast's Metricon Stadium will host a Twenty20 fixture between Australia and South Africa.

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. India have never played a floodlit match.

The newly built Perth stadium will also make its debut when India and Australia face-off in second test match of the series.

The season starts in June, when the Australian men will travel for a five-match one-day worldwide series and a lone Twenty20 global against England.

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

"Our men's worldwide season structure changes slightly this summer, with one-day and T20 global matches against South Africa and India in November".

In a big coup for the Big Bash finals, all cricketers will be available to their franchises once the global fixtures finish up in the first week of February.
