All three matches will be broadcast live. File

Contrary to media reports that had emerged earlier this month, the Asian giants are also unlikely to host the West Indies in a day-night Test during their tour to India in October this year.

The statement comes after CA released its entire 2018-19 worldwide fixture, comprising of 22 matches across the formats, without confirming whether it would continue its recent tradition of hosting a pink-ball match at Adelaide Oval.

However, despite India's denial, Cricket Australia (CA) is still hopeful that they will be able to convince the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The hosts will also play India in three ODIs in January.

Perth Stadium will host a Test for the first time when the second match of the series against India is played from December 14 to 18.
