ecbICC was planning on to start test matches in floodlit i.e, day-night Test match. This idea is still under consideration. England’s Cricket Board – ECB put forwarded the idea and proposed the plan to hold the first floodlit match in their own country.

Bangladesh was invited to play the first ever day-night Test match that will be held in May/June of next year.

Unfortunately, two counties is England have shown reluctance to experience with the pinkish ball in night. This refusal can cause many barriers in the widespread application of day-night Test matches. Resistance is coming because no test has been carried out whether one can play in such a scenario or not. John Stephen said that “There is always resistance to change and we have got to find a ball that is durable and that really is the sticking point.” The name of the two counties who has refused are Durham and Worcestershire.
