London: 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 Richardson, chief executive of the International Cricket Council (ICC), was quoted as telling today's edition of 'The Times' that a different colour 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 on November 27 in Adelaide.
Richardson 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 coloured ball is good enough". A white ball is used during limited-overs cricket.
