Australia and New Zealand plan first day-night Test match in 2015


Australia and New Zealand are planning to play the first day-night Test match in November 2015.

The venue, in Australia, is yet to be decided but the match will not be the traditional Boxing Day Test in Melbourne or New Year's Test in Sydney.

"The challenge is to try to make Test cricket more accessible for fans," said Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland.

The move could lead to the introduction of a pink ball to be used under lights.

The International Cricket Council has previously backed the idea of nations working together to stage day-night Test matches.
