England will be unlikely to stage a day-night Ashes Test match when Australia tour in 2019, England and Wales Cricket Board chief executive Tom Harrison said yesterday.

The two countries played the first day-night Test against each other in the second match of the current series at Adelaide Oval earlier this month. A further two day-night Tests - against India and Sri Lanka - are likely to be staged in the 2018-2019 season. "It's to be decided, but it's unlikely, to be honest," Harrison told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
