The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is all set to introduce pink ball cricket in their forthcoming domestic season starting September. There would be 10 matches that will be played under lights including the semifinal and final in Quaid-e-Azam Trophy (QEA). The idea was recommended by Pakistan’s domestic cricket committee to get the players used to day-night Tests. Moreover, Pakistan will be playing their first day-night Test against Australia in Brisbane in December. (Ian Chappell throws his weight behind day-night Tests ) Pakistan’s domestic season will begin with the National Super Eight T20 Cup in August and the QEA will be played between 16 teams. According to a report on ESPNCricinfo, PCB has tried out pink ball cricket for the last six years, limiting it to few games. In 2010-11, QEA Trophy final was played with an orange ball, the next season PCB introduced the pink ball. The last QEA Trophy final involving Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited and United Bank too was played under lights, which received mixed reactions from both teams. The players had issue with visibility of the ball and its quality once it got old. However, the PCB was pleased with the trial and the players are now ready to play more games with the pink ball.
