Adelaide's day-night Test will not go ahead this summer, after the Board of Control for Cricket in India refused to agree to participate.

Cricket Australia confirmed on Tuesday that the fixture, which needs the agreement of the touring team to go ahead, was not agreed to by India.

"We can confirm that we have received advice from the Board of Control for Cricket in India that it is not prepared to participate in a proposed Day-Night Test in Adelaide this summer," a Cricket Australia spokesperson said.

"Whilst we appreciate some Adelaide fans may be disappointed, we know how popular the Adelaide Test is and look forward to hosting India there in December.

"We are committed to hosting at least one Day-Night Test each home summer as part of our continued focus to grow Test cricket, and we are excited about the Day-Night Test against Sri Lanka at the Gabba in January."

India, alongside Bangladesh, have been tentative to embrace the pink ball.

Australia play four Tests against India this upcoming summer, as well as three Twenty20 internationals and three one-dayers.
