Lahore: Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Zaka Ashraf believes that the proposal to have day-night Tests is a progressive one and has promised to back the idea to the hilt.
"Provided there are no technical problems in it for players and spectators we would not be averse to playing a day and night Test," he told PTI on Thursday.
Ashraf said he saw having Test matches from late afternoon to night as a viable option to counter the growing interest in Twenty20 cricket.
"Day and night Tests could be one way to match the increasing number of T20 and ODI matches. We see it as a positive step which will mean prime time viewership for Tests and also an attractive alternate for working people to come to stadiums to watch five day cricket," he explained.
Ashraf had no doubt that day-night Tests will increase the value of five-day cricket.
