First day-night Test scheduled for next summer

ADELAIDE or Hobart is set to host the first day-night cricket Test in November next year between Australia and New Zealand.

Cricket Australia boss James Sutherland said yesterday that talks between the two countries about the revolutionary idea were progressing well.

"We're certainly very excited about the concept and serious about properly pushing ahead," he said.

Sutherland ruled out Perth because of the time difference, and also said the first day-night Test would be scheduled in a non-holiday period, ruling out the traditional Boxing Day and New Year's Day Test matches.

"The real opportunities are when people have work commitments and children have school commitments," he said.

Pink Kookaburra balls will be used after they were trialled during last summer's Sheffield Shield. They will also be trialled in New Zealand this season.
