Former Australia captain Michael Clarke has opined that India opted out of the day-night Test since this is the best chance for them to win a Test series in Australia.
"I think India feel like they know the conditions that will suit them best to beat Australia. Remember India have never beaten Australia ever in Australia. This is their chance," Clarke was quoted as saying in an IANS report.
CA wanted to continue with day-night Test tradition, but BCCI refused, "If India play during the day, the wicket is flatter and spin a little bit more. At night there is no spin, there is moisture and bit more movement."
"So India prefer to take their chances during the day like they have played every other Test match throughout their careers. So I can understand why they are not wanting to play D/N test matches," Clarke went on to add.
