Cricket Australia boss James Sutherland admitted it was "pretty clear that the Gabba has slipped down the rankings" after announcing Brisbane would instead host Sri Lanka in a day-night test in January.

The statement comes after CA released its entire 2018-19 worldwide fixture, comprising of 22 matches across the formats, without confirming whether it would continue its recent tradition of hosting a pink-ball match at Adelaide Oval.

Adelaide Oval won't host an ODI on Australia Day next year, while the fate of the day-night Test remains in doubt.

"It is our preference that we play India in a day-night test match in Adelaide, but we are still working through this detail and hope to have an answer on this in the coming weeks", CA chief executive James Sutherland said.

Cricket Australia (CA) said it was continuing discussions with the BCCI with a view to playing their first day-night test in Adelaide from December 6-10.

Australia will take on arch rivals India at the 60,000-seat venue in the second Test from December 14-18.

The one day internationals will be played between 12 and 18 January.

The report also states India are not keen on "jeopardizing" their chances of winning a Test series in Australia by playing a day-night Test as they are used to playing with the pink-ball.

November 17 - Australia v South Africa, Carrara Stadium, Gold Coast, T20I.

Earlier in February, Chaudhary was pulled up by the CoA for initiating a proposal for the day-night Test against the West Indies without consulting the latter and the stakeholders of Indian cricket.

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

Meanwhile, Gold Coast, which was venue for this year's Commonwealth Games, will be staging its first-ever global game when Australia host South Africa for a one-off T20I on November 17.

And more gaps in the men's worldwide schedule - which begins with limited-overs fixtures - will allow some of the game's Test and one-day global stars to make more appearances in the Big Bash League.

Exposure to pink-ball is a must before playing day-night cricket as the pink Kookaburra tends to swing quite a lot under the lights.

CA has yet to confirm the dates of the domestic season, but it is likely to include an expanded Big Bash League season of 43 games.
