    Serious point, how many places will they actually be able to play a day night test without dew problems?

    Nowhere I suspect. How bad are the due problems in England in the evening? I know test matches never start early here, if it's rained, because of dew in the morning, but since the days are long in June/July, maybe the dew wouldn't come into effect.

    Don't think its humid enough for it most of the time tbf.

    Probably good in places like SA or Australia.

    Australia play about every ODI as a day night game, even on weekends. So I'd imagine it wouldn't be too bad a problem there.

    Could cause problems on Thursdays though. I like my late-night shopping

    I haven't read the link posted because as state earlier I cbf clicking linx. But what time slot will the final session be played in? If they require the full use of the lights with the black sky background, with a red ball it won't be good for TV or spectators, as the ball will easily get lost in the sky.

    They'd use a pink ball I think. But to answer your question, the hours of play will be completely up to the boards.

    I like the idea of day-night tests, but I'm not sure on the practicalities.

    I'm not aware of the dew problem. Is it a problem because the ball swings violent in the humid evening conditions (which I wouldn't be that concerned about), or is it an issue because the outfield and the ball get slippery? Either way, I don't think dew would be a major concern in New Zealand, and there are a couple of grounds around the country (especially McLean Park and Hamilton) where day night matches could probably help to boost attendances. Better not ever be used as an excuse to shift test matches from the Basin to the Stadium though. I know there have been a few trials of light coloured balls for day-night FC matches, does anyone know how well they worked?

    Four fielders outside the circle? FMD, ODI's have become a complete joke. With this rule, 400 will become blase and spinners and part-timers will be annihilated. Up until now I still really enjoyed the format, but I can't see the point of tuning in to watch 7 hours of block-bash bull****. It's particularly irritating because, as somebody has already pointed out, the easy way to improve the cat-and-mouse middle overs period is simply to allow bowlers more than 10 overs each. Ugh.

    Agree with all of this.

    And I wouldn't be surprised if they try putting on a Test at the Wetspac at some point. Apparently, most of the HRV Cup 20:20 Domestic games are going to be staged there. Which is disgusting, IMO.

    I think just pushing it back to 8 o'clock finish is a great idea, in Australia anyway. And leave the Perth Test as is.

    England is fine with the dew factor for the majority of the summer.

    Yeah, though I'm less concerned about T20's at the stadium. In an ideal world, the basin would be upgraded to allow day-night matches, but sadly that'll never happen.

    Last session starts at 6pm and ends when the parents of the players tell them dinner has to be eaten right now
