West Indies will join the day-night Test match revolution tomorrow, hoping the innovation will win back legions of fans who have turned their backs on the under-performing Caribbean side.
The third Test of the series against Sri Lanka at Kensington Oval in Barbados will be the 10th day-night affair since it debuted in 2015 when Australia hosted New Zealand.
Since that time, three more day-night Tests have been staged in Australia, two in Dubai, in an effort to entice expatriate workers to watch Pakistan, and one each in England, South Africa and New Zealand.
West Indies lead the series against Sri Lanka 1-NIL but the first two matches in Trinidad and St. Lucia were very poorly attended.
Meanwhile, Philippe Coutinho and Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior scored in injury time as Brazil beat Costa Rica 2-NIL to edge towards the last 16 of the World Cup today despite another unconvincing performance.
