After the grand success of the first ever day and night test, Cricket Australia is planning to introduce more such games in the near future. As per Cricket Australia, there are plans in offering to host a day and night Ashes test. The primary reason said about the development by Cricket Australia has been that since the Ashes already has a cult following, it will lead to more excitement for the day and night test.

“With the success of the Adelaide Test match this year, the anticipation is that we will have at least one day-night Test in 2016,” said James Sutherland, chief of Cricket Australia. “It seems like it would be a natural progression for there to be an Ashes day-night Test match in 2017-18.” “It is certainly on the radar,” Sutherland said. “We haven’t had any formal conversations with the ECB.”

“We’ll have meetings in Dubai in January with a lot of the chief executives and certainly will be talking to counterparts at Pakistan and South Africa. “They definitely know it will be on the agenda. The right place, right time and right conditions — we’re going to see more Test cricket played in the evening.” Viewers could indeed witness a spectacle if an Ashes test is played under lights.

 

However, the administrators of the game will have to take key efforts in order to monitor the efficiency of the Pink ball. In the recent Australia – New Zealand day and night test played at Adelaide, the players complained that the pink ball deteriorated far quicker than the red ball and the visibility was a through issue. In a high profile series like the Ashes, such a factor could play a massive role in influencing the outcome of the series and the general public response. If Cricket Australia is to indeed host a day and night Ashes test, they would first have to take care of a few important factors.
