The day/night test

It seems the ICC are still moving forward with plans to HOLY CRAP MICHAEL JACKSON IS DEAD introduce day/night test matches sooner rather than later. I'm sure this would get a few more bums in seats, but weekend attendances are also pretty poor in most countries, and I really don't think the novelty of watching test cricket at night will last very long. Personally, it just feels weird imagining test cricket at night. Even weirder if you imagine the players using crocodiles as bats, although that's neither here nor there.

The bigger issue is that it totally changes the balance of the game. I'm actually all for a referral system, but day/night cricket would be a HUGE step. A HUGE step into a pile of shit, which was concealing a bear trap.

Gilly said it best, innovate with the other forms of the game but leave the fundamentals of test cricket alone.
