Agency : Cricket Australia (CA) are all set to ask the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) about the possibility of playing up to two day-night Tests during India's tour of Australia early 2021. According to a report in ESPNcricinfo, a delegation of CA officials led by chairman Earl Eddings will have talks with BCCI officials in January 2020, when Australia tour India for a limited-overs series. "Pleasingly they've played their first day-night Test and won easily. Now they've got through that it might give them the right build-up to it over here. I've got no doubt they'll consider playing one and maybe even more day-night Test matches. But that's down the track to when we catch up with them in January," Eddings told ESPNcricinfo while hoping the two countries play five-Test series in future. India recently played their first day-night Test, beating Bangladesh in a little over two days at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. After the game, captain Virat Kohli had said he'd be open to playing day-night Tests in Australia, provided they have enough preparation. "I think a good practise game before that and enough time to prepare-we're open to doing anything," Kohli had told reporters when asked if India would play one in Australia next year.
