Day-night Test matches will return to the calendar in the upcoming Australian summer as Pakistan have agreed to Cricket Australia’ wishes.
According to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald, Pakistan and Australia’s second Test at Adelaide will be the first of two consecutive pink ball games, with the second being the series opener between Australia and New Zealand in Perth.
Pakistan agreeing to the demands and wishes of Australia will bring them some relief after they were forced into changing their plans and embark on a tour for the first time in 40 years to accommodate an ODI series in India.
“The dialogue between CA and the PCB was around what we would need to do to make that tour happen,” PCB managing director Wasim Khan told The Herald.
“We also know there’s a lot of bilateral cricket to be played before that. We need to continue to evidence security measures we can put in place. All things being well we can pick up dialogue in early 2022.”
