Mumbai: The first India-Australia Test match will be a pink-ball affair, to be played under lights in Adelaide, confirmed Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly.

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,” said Ganguly 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. As of now, the BCCI hopes to have a truncated domestic season.

“It might not be possible to hold all the tournaments for practical reasons. But we hope to have a full-fledged Ranji Trophy from early January and at least one limited-overs tournament,” Ganguly said.

The BCCI has two premier men’s limited-overs tournaments at senior level – the Vijay Hazare Trophy (50 overs) and the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (T20).
