2nd D/N Test to be played by Pak, WI
Pakistan on Thursday announced the schedule for their series against the West Indies in the United Arab Emirates beginning next month, including their first-ever day-night Test.
The series, which runs from September 23 to November 3, includes three Twenty20 internationals and as many one-day and Tests, the highlight being the day-night Test in Dubai in October, only the second such Test to be played. Australia hosted the first-ever day-night Test at Adelaide against New Zealand in November last year.
Pakistan's plans to host the day-night Test were made after they agreed to play Australia. The West Indies Test will give them their first taste of playing an international match with the new pink balls used in the day-night Test last year.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said in a statement it "will host its first ever day-night Test match from October 13-17 to be played with the pink ball under lights at the Dubai cricket stadium".
