The idea behind having the final played under the lights is to make the event more attractive for fans and sponsors. If the PCB goes ahead with the plans, it will be the first time that a first-class match will be played under floodlights in Pakistan.
There is a debate going on in the cricket world over the idea of holding Tests players under floodlights. Traditionalists oppose the idea but many believe that such a move will make the longer version of the game more attractive for fans.
The final, if it’s held under lights, will be played with orange or pink balls which could make a significant impact on the result of the match to begin from January 12.
Former Test captain Rashid Latif has welcomed the move.
“The board has made a good decision to provide entertainment to fans,” Rashid told ‘The News’ here on Wednesday.
