England, West Indies 1st D/N Test Today

Birmingham(August 16, 2017): The First Day-Night match in 140-years history of England is going to begin today against West Indies in Edgbaston cricket ground of Birmingham.

The opening game of a three-match series will be only the fifth Test anywhere to be played under the day-night format since Australia and New Zealand contested the first in Adelaide in November 2015.

The late start, finish and pink ball are still novelties in the five-day form of the game – but can we expect to see more floodlit matches as Tests fight to stay relevant in a cricketing era increasingly in thrall to the quick hits of Twenty20.

West Indies lost 66 matches and only won 3 in test matches of foreign tour in the last 17-years. But skipper Jason Holder said that his pacers are good as Joseph, Cummins and Gabriel are being taken under-dogs but they would turnout dangerous for West Indies top order batting line.

West Indies had won last test match in England too eight years ago .
