A cricket official said on Saturday that Pakistan will experiment the pink ball in the final of their premier first-class tournament. They will experiment it in the preparation for a possible day-night Test against Australia later this year.

Shakil Sheikh, the Pakistan Cricket Board’s committee head told AFP, “We had experimented with the orange ball in the final of the trophy in 2011 and then with a pink ball in 2012 so the latest final will help us further assess the pink ball as Australia have offered us to play a day-night Test later this year. We are ready to experiment at the highest level and this final will help the players and the board to consider the day-night Test offer, after which we will finalise our plans.”

 

The final match (Quaid-e-Azam trophy) will be played between Sui Northern Gas Pipelines and United Bank at the National Stadium from Sunday. Pakistan Test skipper Misbah-ul-Haq is the skipper of the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines while United Bank will play under Younis khan’s leading.   

The first ever pink ball was used in the international cricket in the first ever day-night Test between Australia and New Zealand in November last year at Adelaide.

The ICC (International Cricket Council) announced that the day-night Test was successful while CA ( Cricket Australia) announced a record breaking crowd in the non-ashes Test matches at the ground.
