Australia & New Zealand agreed for first day-night Test in November

Australia and New Zealand will meet in cricket’s first day-night Test match later this year.

Starting on November 27, the final Test of their three-match series will be under lights in Adelaide, with a pink ball and both teams wearing whites.

Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland said he hoped the idea would increase interest in the game.

The New Zealand Cricket Players’ Association said its members were “nervous” about the experiment.


NZCPA chief executive Heath Mills indicated concerns about the difficulties of playing Test cricket under varying light and of dealing with the pink ball.
