The loss of global cricket on Australia Day at Adelaide Oval is "hugely disappointing", South Australian Premier Steven Marshall says.

CA announced the schedule of Australia's home summer on Monday without confirming a start time for the Adelaide Test.

CA chief executive James Sutherland said it was his organisation's preference to use the day-night format for the Adelaide fixture.

The T20 global at Metricon Stadium on November 17 will follow Australia's three one-dayers against the touring Proteas in Perth, Adelaide and Hobart.

The T20 worldwide at Carrara on November 17 will follow Australia's three one-dayers against the touring Proteas in Perth, Adelaide and Hobart. However, this year, they are awaiting confirmation from India about whether they will ply under floodlights or not.

Australian Cricketers' Association CEO Alistair Nicholson welcomed the increased scheduling of women's cricket.

The first global match set to play out in front of the Canberra crowd will be Australia's women's cricket team, as they face trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand in a T20I match. They also haven't given their consent for the Day-Night Test against the Windies later this year. "Going forward the players are interested in exploring more long-form cricket opportunities, particularly after such a successful Ashes Test previous year".

The Gabba has been overlooked as a venue to host world No.1 Test side India this summer.

Perth Stadium will host a Test match for the first time when it hosts the second Test against India from December 14 to 18.

India will tour Australia later this year for the four-Test series which begins with the game in Adelaide on December 6.

Instead the Gabba will host the first of two Tests against Sri Lanka, a day-nighter from January 24 which runs over the Australia Day long weekend.

"The [PM's XI] game is being played earlier in the year than previous years which will allow for a true representative team without worldwide or Big Bash League commitments preventing players from being involved".

After Adelaide, the Test series will move on to Perth, and then the two teams will square off with each other in the Boxing Day Test at MCG before ending the Test series with a New Year Test match in Sydney.
