This will be an interesting topic. I am a fan of the idea but not sure whether it will get up. The problems i see are if they start the game at night or twilight then it wont finished till after midnight. How many people will be still watching? Also if they start the game in the afternoon then players will be warm and ready to play but as it gets later on in the evening then players will cool done quickly and thats when more injuries will happen. I love cricket and watching it but i dont see the players agreeing to it
Another reason for this possibly being implemented is that those final sessions at the WACA get good ratings in the eastern states, which I enjoy watching aswell.
If it keeps test cricket alive, why not. Let's face it, we live in a world that is dominated by TV ratings. Night is ratings time.
QuoteAnother reason for this possibly being implemented is that those final sessions at the WACA get good ratings in the eastern states, which I enjoy watching aswell.Don't get how this applies...Say the match is ending at 9pm WA time, then it's ending at midnight in Vic. Not too many people will be up at midnight to watch due to work commitments etc.
