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. However, this year, they are awaiting confirmation from India about whether they will ply under floodlights or not.

CA chief executive James Sutherland said it was his organisation's preference to use the day-night format for the Adelaide fixture. Though, now, India will not play any day/night game in the coming season, which starts with historic Test match against Afghanistan.

India will begin their Australia tour with a three-match T20 series from November 21 to 25, and then play four Tests in Adelaide (December 6-10), Perth (December 14-18), Melbourne (December 26-30) and Sydney (January 3-7).

The series continues with the Boxing Day test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground from December 26 and wraps up in the New Year at the Sydney Cricket Ground (Jan. 3-7).

Adelaide has hosted D/N Tests in the last three years against New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan and England.

This rules out a home day-night Test against the West Indies in October as well, despite the fact that the Cricket West Indies had agreed to play one during their visit to India. India have never played a floodlit match. However, this time around Australia will be in for a stern challenge to hold on to their supremacy as they are a much weaker side in absence of Steve Smith and David Warner in their ranks owing to the infamous ball-tampering saga.




The Gabba in Brisbane, which usually hosts the first test of the Australian summer, has been relegated to the January 24-28 series-opener against Sri Lanka, who will tour the country for the first time in six years.

"We have some of the best players in the world and I think the fans will appreciate the opportunity to see them on one of the biggest TV days of the year being AFL Grand Final night".

The Tests against India will be followed by three One-day Internationals (ODI) from 12 to 18 January.

CA has yet to confirm the dates of the domestic season, but it is likely to include an expanded Big Bash League season of 43 games.

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