A Big Announcement About Adelaide Oval Is On The Way

Dec 12, 2019


Following some uncertainty Cricket Australia is expected to announce Adelaide Oval will host a test match against India next year, reports FIVEaa Breakfast’s David Penberthy.

Penbo said during Thursday’s Breaking @ 8 segment:

“We have it on very good authority that sooner rather than later Cricket Australia is going to confirm that Adelaide will definitely be hosting one of the test matches next summer against India, and they will make that pledge regardless of whether the dispute over the day-night format has been resolved or not. The Indians have reservations about playing the day-night game…

“You can’t argue with the numbers… 90,000 people went to the second test a couple of weeks ago... the weather was appalling… the Gabba got 52,000 with perfect weather.

“It sounds like it is getting to the point now where there will be recognition that in the same way that Sydney gets New Year’s, Melbourne gets Boxing Day, that Adelaide will always get one of the marquee tests.”
