CRICKET: Australia to stage floodlight Test matches played with a pink ball
2013-08-30 08:55:43 | (0 Comments)
Day-night Test matches could be played in Australia in two years' time.
Cricket Australia has announced plans to stage a round of floodlit first-class Sheffield Shield matches, using a pink ball, this season.
South Australia, Queensland and Victoria will host the trial games.
If they are successful, a floodlit Test could be played as soon as 2015-16.
Cricket Australia spokesman James Sutherland says the matches are the first serious effort to make day-night Test cricket a reality.
The commercial success of Twenty20 cricket, typically played during the evening, has led some to question whether the five-day game needs to adapt.
Sutherland thinks cricket cannot afford to have its prime events played while most supporters are at work.
