Pakistan to host Windies in D/N Test
The Pakistan Cricket Board announced the schedule of the West Indies tour to Pakistan, to be played in the UAE, and it will feature only the second ever day-night Test, to be played in Dubai.
The series comprises of three T20 Internationals, three ODIs and three Tests, and will start on 23 September with the T20 Series.
The PCB will host their first ever Day Night Test, from 13 to 17 October in a match to be played with the pink ball under lights at the Dubai Cricket Stadium.
The West Indies will also play a three-day first class game under lights in Sharjah against the PCB Patrons XI as part of the preparation for the Day Night Test.
The first Day-Night Test was played between Australia and New Zealand in Adelaide last year, which the Aussies won, and South Africa will face Australia at the end of this year under lights as well.
