Calcutta: Cricket Australia (CA) has on Wednesday confirmed its decision that, subject to the resolution of certain conditions, Adelaide and Brisbane will join Melbourne and Sydney as the four cities that will host Test matches against India next year. Perth has been, on the other hand, left out cold.
CA chief executive, James Sutherland said: “Unfortunately due to the unique nature of the schedule next season, with a World Cup year, there was going to be a couple of States disappointed about our Test match allocation.
“Although the WACA has missed out on a Test match, they will play host to up to four limited over matches in the 2014-15 season that will see South Africa tour in a limited over series in November as well as India and England competing in a tri-series in January prior to the 2015 Cup.”
Sutherland said that the WACA was working on improving its facilities.
