Cricket Australia wanted the first Test in Adelaide from December 6 played under lights to tap into the growing popularity of pink-ball cricket.

The day-night Test has been seen as a way to attract greater attendance and television viewers but the BCCI's Committee of Administrators chief Vinod Rai has made it clear the tourists will not put up with conditions they believe are unfair in a series they may begin as favourites to win.

Australia's Ashes tour of England will kick-off the new tournament and could also earmark the first time the coin toss won't be used in a modern-day Test match. The toss is an integral part of cricket matches and taking away toss is taking away the challenge winning captain has of making the right decision.

A newly-formed committee of the International Cricket Council (ICC), one that includes ex-international cricketers and coaches, elite panel umpires and match-referees, is keen on debating the idea of doing away with the "toss" in Test cricket. Recently, he criticized the BCCI for not prioritizing Test cricket and he doesn't consider the move to be a healthy prospect for the longest format of the game in India.

Harbhajan asks India to shed their doubts about pink-ball Tests and play them both home and away India must embrace day-night Tests and shed its apprehensions about the pink ball matches, seasoned spinner Harbhajan Singh suggested yesterday. I'm actually at a loss to make any sense.

Dilip Vengsarkar further went on to say, "If this is only about home team's interference in pitch preparation, then just introduce neutral curators". Vengsarkar said, "As it is, a lot of interfering has already happened with the game of cricket, in terms of how it was played and where things stand today".

As things stand, the home team captain flips the coin and the visiting captain calls heads or tails. "If we could take up that challenge why not pink-ball cricket?"

On may 28, ICC will sit down for a meeting to discuss and debate the aspects of coin tosses.

The former Australian batsman who was concerned about the falling popularity of Test cricket around the globe feels that there are only few countries left where Test cricket is still alive in its pure form.

India are refusing to play their maiden day-night Test in December in Adelaide, anxious their inexperience in the conditions might hamper their bid for a rare series win in Australia.
