PCB proposes day-night Test between Pakistan, Bangladesh
Statesman Report
KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB’s) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Wasim Khan, revealed that a proposal had been sent to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to play the second Test between Pakistan and Bangladesh, which is scheduled to be played at the National Stadium in Karachi in April, under lights.
Khan claimed that the PCB was looking forward to organising a day-night Test encounter between the sides but were waiting for a response from their counterparts in Bangladesh.
“With Test cricket returning to Pakistan now and many countries also going towards day and night Tests, we want to give our players maximum exposure and also want to host pink ball matches,” Khan said.
The PCB’s CEO also revealed that Cricket South Africa had replied positively to sending its team to Pakistan for a three-match Twenty20 International (T20I) Series in March-April.
“South Africa ends its tour of India on March 18 while the PSL ends on March 22 so we are looking at pencilling in the first match on say March 24,” he concluded.
