NOW GET READY FOR THE DAY-NIGHT CRICKET TEST MATCHES
ICC APPROVES DAY-NIGHT TEST MATCHES
A move that has been in the news for last few months is finally underway. The International Cricket Council has approved day-night Test matches. It is anticipated that the move will revolutionize the test cricket and heavily influx back the interest of the people in Test Cricket.
WHAT ICC SAID ABOUT THE DAY-NIGHT TEST MATCHES?
In an official release to media, ICC reported that- “Participating countries may agree to play day/night Test matches. The home and visiting boards will decide on the hours of play which will be six hours of scheduled play per day while the two boards will also decide on the precise brand, type and colour of ball to be used for the match.”
THE BIGGEST TALKING POINT OF DAY-NIGHT TEST MATCHES
For the last several months, ICC has been toying with the idea of day-night test matches, and for that, it has been experimenting with the pink ball for a long time. Yet, the results and the studies of using the pink ball in the day-night tests have not fully convinced the ICC technical committee. Hence, it’s still not clear what balls will be used in the day-night cricket test matches. So, let’s wait and watch!
