Adelaide Oval will host the first Test match in the coming summer's cricket schedule but will miss out on global matches over the Australia Day weekend. If so, it would help prepare them for a pink-ball clash on Australian soil.

The limited-overs cricket continues when India play three T20 fixtures in Australia in November, before the first Test between the two nations starts in Adelaide on December 6.

Australian cricket chiefs are still trying to convince reluctant India to play a day-night Test in Adelaide this year after releasing their worldwide playing schedule on Monday.

Australia has hosted New Zealand, South Africa and England in day-night tests at Adelaide Oval, winning all three of the pink ball matches.

"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", he said.

There has been talk of making the first Test of the series, to be played at Adelaide Oval, a day-night affair, but it's yet to be confirmed.

Adelaide will host two of six One Day Internationals to be played by the men's side: against South Africa on November 9 and India on January 15.
