Cricket Australia (CA) and New Zealand Cricket (NZC) have said that they are pushing ahead with plans to stage a historic day-night Test match, possibly as early as the 2015-16 season.


According to Sport24, CA chief executive James Sutherland met his New Zealand Cricket counterpart David White in Melbourne last week during the International Cricket Council (ICC) annual conference to discuss the idea.

They are devising plans to stage the match when New Zealand tour Australia in November 2015, with the venue to be determined, CA said in a statement.

The ICC gave its approval in 2012 for member countries to work together on staging Test cricket under lights.

Sutherland and White said in a statement that they felt that day-night tests would only strengthen the position and possibilities for Test cricket in many parts of the world.

ICC chief executive David Richardson said he supported the idea.
