Cricket Australia confirmed on Monday that Adelaide Oval will be the venue for the series-opening test against India but has yet to strike an agreement with the Indian board (BCCI) on staging the match under lights.

The statement comes after CA released its entire 2018-19 global fixture, comprising of 22 matches across the formats, without confirming whether it would continue its recent tradition of hosting a pink-ball match at Adelaide Oval.

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

Cricket Australia (CA) yesterday said that they are trying to convince the BCCI that the first match of the four-Test series, starting December 6, be played using the pink ball. Though, now, India will not play any day/night game in the coming season, which starts with historic Test match against Afghanistan.

India's tour will kick off with a three-match Twenty20 worldwide series in November after Australia start the home summer with four limited overs matches against South Africa.
