Gold Coast to host international T20 match

Cricket Australia (CA) released its schedule for the 2018-19 global season on Monday (April 30) as it looked ahead to welcoming South Africa, India and Sri Lanka.

Cricket Australia is still working to convince India to play a day-night Test in Adelaide, but the Gabba will host a pink-ball affair. Given that a pink ball Test match against India is becoming increasingly unlikely, Australia might host a Day-Night Test against Windies in October.

"It's not the end of the world if it's not, but at the same time we believe that Adelaide lends itself as a great day-night venue", Sutherland said.

After Adelaide, the Test series will move on to Perth, and then the two teams will square off with each other in the Boxing Day Test at MCG before ending the Test series with a New Year Test match in Sydney.

"If you look at the last Test match played there during the Ashes series we had over 200,000 people there".

India will begin their Australia tour with a three-match T20 series from November 21 to 25, before competing in the four Tests in Adelaide (December 6-10), Perth (December 14-18), Melbourne (December 26-30) and Sydney (January 3-7).

Following the Tests, there will be three ODIs against India in a seven-day window before a two-Test series against Sri Lanka in Brisbane under lights at the Gabba and a second match in Canberra.

Canberra's Manuka Oval will host its maiden Test when Australia round out their home summer of cricket in game two against Sri Lanka from February 1.
