Just read an interesting article on the BBC where Cricket Australia said they were interested in trialling day-night test matches in as little as 2 years time. While an interesting prospect, it does seem to shy away from the traditionalists within the game, the idea also doesn't have the support of Ricky Ponting who fears nightmarish conditions for batsmen following reports of that from those who played in the first class trials in Brisbane and Perth. So with the obvious benefits of increased tv audiences and the likelihood of increased attendances in the grounds themselves is this idea a starter? Personally I don't think it's a good idea, it's fine for one-day cricket but there would be huge problems with the ball since the red one cannot be used in day-night cricket and authorities have struggled to come up with a ball that has the same characteristics as the red one. Not all sports are meant to be played at night, just leave well enough alone, I've no problem with using floodlights when bad light is an issue but that's about it.
