India has also not kept Pakistan amongst its six proposed opponents for the World Test Championship beginning in 2019. However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said after the Special General Meeting (SGM) in New Delhi on Monday that the total number of matchdays will go down from 390 to 306 (excluding ICC World Cup and Champions Trophy which India will host during the period).

Paying heed to captain Virat Kohli's complaints on player fatigue, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Monday made a decision to reduce the workload of Indian cricketers by shortening its cricket calendar.

In the meeting it was further decided that Team India will play nearly fifty percent of its matches against big global teams like England, Australia and South Africa.

ACB chairman Atif Mashal and CEO Shafiqullah Stanikzai had met BCCI CEO Rahul Johri in Mumbai and requested to play against India.

After becoming the full member of ICC and earning Test status, Afghanistan are all set to play their first ever Test in India as per reports.

The RCA filed a suit against its suspension by the BCCI, to which the board had asked the association to withdraw all pending cases and not to involve the cricket board in any case. The team from the war-ravaged nation has hosted its home games in India, most recently the series against Ireland in Greater Noida.

This will be the first time that the event will be completely held in India: the nation has, on three occasions previously, hosted the World Cup partially (1987, 1996 and 2011). They will also become the 4th team to play their inaugural Test against India after Pakistan, Zimbabwe and Bangladesh.
