Australia welcomes moves toward day-night tests

Cricket Australia has welcomed the prospect of day-night tests following a decision by the sport's governing body that paves the way for the long-form of international cricket to be played under lights.
The International Cricket Council announced Monday that test-playing nations can now agree to play day-night test matches, mutually deciding the hours of play and the color and type of ball used.
Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland, a long-time advocate of day-night tests, said fans have a better chance of watching matches if they are played at night.
He said "test cricket is by definition played on at least three week days, times when most people are at work or school, and this limits the ability of fans to attend or watch on TV."
