Steyn keen to play day-night Test


Melbourne, Apr.20 : South Africa pace spearhead Dale Steyn has expressed that he is keen to play a pink-ball Test under lights, but insisted that his side would at least need a first-class game to adjust before playing the proposed twilight match in Adelaide in November.

Australia will host South Africa in a three-match Test series, with the final match in Adelaide intended to be a day-night Test.

"I don’t want to go through my whole career without playing a day-night game," Steyn was quoted as saying by

"I thought it looked awesome when New Zealand and Australia played one. It looked entertaining, there was a big crowd. The ball is pink - it’s something different. You want to test your skills with that whole thing and it’s very exciting," he said.

Earlier, the South African Players’ Association showed reluctance over the disadvantage their players might face on account of having not played a day-night Test at any level.

However, the 32-year-old fast bowler believes that those concerns would rise only if the series comes to a deadlock. He suggested that his team mates would be ’extremely into it’ if they get a couple of first-class games before the twilight Test.

"I think maybe even one game so the boys can get accustomed to it," said Steyn.

Australia and New Zealand played the inaugural day-night Test at the Adelaide Oval last year, which pulled in records crowds and huge television viewership.
