The Australians will then host a two-test series against Sri Lanka, starting January 24 with a day-night match in Brisbane followed by a test debut for Manuka Oval in Canberra.

Speaking to the media, Sutherland said that India's reluctance to play the pink ball Test was boils down to their urge to win the series.

Cricket Australia released a statement on the issue, saying, "We can confirm that we have received advice from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) that it is not prepared to participate in a proposed day-night Test in Adelaide this summer".

India have never won a test series in Australia and with the hosts' dominance under lights, found it prudent to call-off the arrangement so as not to hamper their chances of a first series win down under.

Cricket Australia had been in discussions with the Indian cricket board to stage a day-night Test at Adelaide Oval.

"I am directed to say by the Committee of Administrators that India would begin to play in the format only in about a year's time", Choudhury wrote to Cricket Australia.

The game scheduled to be played in December will now be held during normal daylight hours using a traditional red ball.

He said: "We have selected a 15-player squad as we push forward in our preparations for the ICC Cricket World Cup in England in 2019".

Unfortunately, the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI), famous for their original stubborn refusal to accept DRS and video technology, has dug its heels in and seen the temporary end of a growing movement.

Massive crowds and exciting matches had seen the day-night concept prove a victor with fans and television viewers in recent years. "We move to the Test Championship in July 2019, where the Ashes will be the first series of the new Test Championship".

India are yet to play a pink-ball Test, and their unfamiliarity with Test cricket under lights as well as Australia's formidable home record in day-night Tests played a part in influencing the management's call.

"This summer is the last season of Test tours as we know it", he said.
