SYDNEY (AP) — The delayed first cricket test between Australia and India has been moved from Brisbane to Adelaide and will start next Tuesday.

The Brisbane test, which was scheduled to be the series-opener, will now be the second test.

The series was due to start this Thursday.

The first test in Adelaide will be from December 9-13 and the second test in Brisbane from December 17-21. The fourth test in Sydney was also re-scheduled to start January. 6.
