Cricket Australia responds to Shastri's demand for more warm-up games
Melbourne: Cricket Australia (CA) has responded positively to India head coach Ravi Shastri's request for more warm-up games in the run-up to the four-match Test series between the two nations later this year.
Following the recent 1-4 series loss to England, Shastri had demanded more warm-up games against Australia ahead of first Test in Adelaide from December 6.
Responding to Shastri's requests of having more warm-up fixtures ahead of the red ball matches, CA has made it clear that they are open to more tour matches.
"We are happy to discuss options with the BCCI, but we have not received any formal notification to increase the number of tour matches prior to their series commencing in Australia," a Cricket Australia spokesperson was quoted as saying.
