Team India had refused to play a Day-Night Test against the Aussies in Adelaide when they toured the nation back in 2018/19.However, as Ganguly became the BCCI president, the side played their maiden Day-Night Test against Bangladesh in November at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.It was India and Bangladesh's maiden D/N Test.
India won the match by an innings and 46 runs.Last month, Indian captain Virat Kohli stressed that his team is ready to play a pink-ball Test anywhere in Australia. Australia has been unstoppable as far as Day-Night Tests are concerned. The Aussies have played seven D/N Test matches so far. They have a 100% record.
