Have said it before - day\night Test cricket is unneccessary in some parts of the cricket World and thus should not be brought in purely for the sake of it.
If there's a genuine chance of it upping viewing figures somewhere, however, great - and it should certainly have effort put into making it happen.

Marketing will drive this one, I reckon. If cricket boards reckon it'll bring more people to Tests, it'll happen regardless of the complaints from the players, especially since their complaints aren't exactly fatal for the idea of playing Tests under lights. I say bring it on, I'd love to go see a Test at night.
I'm already laughing at the uproar, though, when it's realised that white clothing looks like **** under lights and players are forced to play in coloured clothes.
Wasnt the problem with moisture and dew, especially in countries like England? Australia during the summer its not a huge problem but I dont know about other countries.
England has absolutely no need whatsoever of day\night Tests, so the problem of dew in England should not be the remotest of debars.
It better happen, and soon. Don't see why they can't use a red ball like they do in day test matches.

Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
anyone remember NZ vs England at Eden Park in 2002? Was great fun but the players in the field had a bloody hard time seeing the ball against a dark sky.
I'm up for day/night tests. Bring it on.

I find it funny how people who talk about Test cricket being the purest form of the game, are looking to alter the game for commercial reasons. Plus the fact that the complaints at the moment are symptoms that would lead to a less entertaining spectacle in the first place; with soft balls that don't bounce, come off the bat with any pace.
Well night Australian Open finals have been awesome
