Former Test batsman Mark Waugh has dubbed India's decision to not play day-night match against Australia as "selfish" while adding that their move is holding back the future of the game.

Some also feel that India's refusal to play a day and night Test is because they are scared they might not register a whitewash over Australia, given that the hosts have won all their pink-ball Tests so far and have looked dominant.

In the 1980s, India Cricket Team including their Cricket Board was extremely reluctant towards the newly launched one-day cricket.
