Day/night Tests on way, says ICC president

BRIDEGTOWN (Barbados): World cricket’s top administrator is convinced it "won’t be too long" before day/night Tests are being played in either Australia or India.

David Morgan, the president of the International Cricket Council (ICC), in an interview with AFP in Barbados, also said a "context" for Test and one-day international matches was on its way.

While Tests in England are generally sold out and England or South Africa Test tours of Australia also attract large crowds, elsewhere other series in the five-day format struggle to attract spectators.

Ever since floodlit fixtures were pioneered in Australia more than 30 years ago as part of the ‘rebel’ World Series Cricket, there have been suggestions day/night Tests could draw in spectators who are at work during normal playing hours.(PTI)
