    Day/Night games ?

    Welcome to the forums

    I could be wrong but I believe they're all day games.

    It is widely regarded that batting second (under lights) is more difficult than batting in daylight, something particularly evident at the last World Cup (South Africa 2003), when the ball swung sideways at night.

    Hence the ICC were reluctant to schedule any day/nighters this time around.

    Why didn't you put that in the original post?

    As far as I'm aware none of the West Indies' grounds have lights, so day/night games are pretty much impossible. I don't think it has much to do with the swinging ball.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    I prefer Day/Night games. Sitting down with a drink in the night there is nothing better. And with day games you are at school or work and you get home and it is all finished!!

    Dang, I like Day/Nighters.
    The ball might swing more, but I suppose that simply puts more importance on the toss of the coin. The class teams should still walk away the victors.
