ICC to look at using green-yellow balls in test matches

LONDON (AP) -- The head of cricket's ruling body says that "greeny yellow" balls could be used in test matches when bad light threatens to end the day's play.

Dave Richard, chief executive of the International Cricket Council, was quoted as telling Monday's edition of The Times that a different color to the red ball currently used would help test cricket under floodlights.

A pink ball will be used in the inaugural day-night test between Australia and New Zealand starting Nov. 27 in Adelaide.

Richard says "Long term, we will probably end up with a pink or greeny-yellow ball so that we can play under floodlights, if the different colored ball is good enough."

A white ball is used during limited-overs cricket.
