England vs Bangladesh: First Day-Night Test Match in 2010

Did you ever think of a day-night test match in Cricket? If your answer is no, then jus note that there is every possibility you can watch day/night test match from next year. Recently, England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) have agreed to play a day/night test match next year when Bangladesh will tour England in May-June 2010. During the tour, Bangladesh and England will play 2 tests.

If the organizers get the approval of ICC, the governing body of world cricket, then one of the tests will be day/night. No doubt, this will be the first day/night test match in the history of cricket. However, there are a number of issues which need to be addressed before the final decision of holding a day/night match is taken. One of those issues is the color of ball. White ball is used in day/night ODI match, but white color ball would not be appropriate for test cricket because players were white outfit. Here, pink or orange color ball could be an option.
