Windies to host first day-night Test


The West Indies will host their first ever day-night Test in June with Sri Lanka being the opponents in Barbados.

The Windies have already been involved in two day-night Tests, losing to both Pakistan and England, but have never hosted one.

The pink ball Test will be the third game in a three-match series with the first Test scheduled for 6-10 June in Trinidad.

The second Test will take place from 14-18 June at the Darren Sammy Cricket Ground in St Lucia with the historic third Test slated for 23-27 June at the Kensington Oval.

It will be the first time in a decade that Sri Lanka have toured to the Caribbean, with the last Test series finishing one-all in 2008.

Australia hosted New Zealand for the first-ever Test played under lights with a pink ball at the Adelaide Oval in November 2015.
