Ready to play day-night with practice match
Earlier, on playing day-night test in Australia, Indian captain Virat Kohli said that we can play day-night test there next year, but before that practice matches will have to be held. According to him, the Indian team had refused to play the day-night test in 2017-18, because the pink ball had not played a practice match before. A pink ball match cannot be played against a big team without practice. The Indian team will travel to Australia in November next year, where they will play a four-Test series with the hosts.
