The Adelaide Test between Australia and India later this year will be a day sir affair after BCCI refused to play day-night Test. However, former India skipper Sourav Ganguly said that India have the capability to face the pink ball in Test cricket.

“Day-Night Test is the way forward. Every country has to play Day-Night Test. India have reservations but that's a long-term future for Test cricket," Ganguly told IANS according to an NDTV report.

"They are a good side, they will win day-night Test matches also. There is no difference in day-night Test matches and day test matches. It's just a different ball. And they are such class players, they can win," Ganguly went on to say.

Ganguly was also asked about Virat Kohli's decision to skip the one-off Test against Afghanistan. "I think since the side is Afghanistan, he has chosen to play county. If it would have been any other team, he would have not gone. It just shows how important the England tour is for him. I have always maintained, a captain's recognition is how well he and his team does overseas," Ganguly added in the NDTV report.
