On the sidelines of the five-day ICC meeting in Kolkata last week, Chaudhary had said: "I had consulted the Indian team management, the selectors, the office bearers and all were in agreement that one of the two Tests against West Indies [in October] will be a day-night Test".

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. Day-night Tests have been part of Australia's annual cricket calendar ever since the inaugural pink-ball Test was played in Adelaide between the hosts and New Zealand.

"It is our preference that we play India in a day-night test match in Adelaide, but we are still working through this detail and hope to have an answer on this in the coming weeks", CA CEO James Sutherland said in a media release.

India will tour Australia later this year for the four-Test series which begins with the game in Adelaide on December 6.

Australia and India play their second test at the new Perth Stadium in Burswood, across the Swan river from the city's traditional test venue, the WACA.

After the Test series, India will remain in Australia for three ODIs at the SCG, Adelaide Oval, and the MCG.

Adelaide Oval will host the first Test match in the coming summer's cricket schedule but will miss out on worldwide matches over the Australia Day weekend.

India and Bangladesh are the only two high-profile Test-playing nations to have not played a day-night Test yet.

The second Test, which is scheduled for December 14-18, will be the first time that a Test match will be played at the Perth Stadium.

Instead the Gabba will host the first of two Tests against Sri Lanka, a day-nighter from January 24 which runs over the Australia Day long weekend. "The Border-Gavaskar Trophy promises to be a bumper series, and it will be headlined by the world-famous Boxing Day Test at the MCG", he added.

Meanwhile, Gold Coast, which was venue for this year's Commonwealth Games, will be staging its first-ever worldwide game when Australia host South Africa for a one-off T20I on November 17.

The Carrara venue, which is the home ground of the AFL's Gold Coast Suns and recently staged the athletics at the Commonwealth Games, may be considered for use during the 2018/19 Big Bash League.

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