Cricket Australia’s (CA) scheduling woes continue to pile up, with plans for a day-night Test in Adelaide in doubt for the second year in a row because Pakistan has become the latest country to refuse offer of playing day-night Tests.
The PCB is understood to be annoyed by Australia’s reluctance to consider playing any part of the recent five-match ODI series in the UAE in Pakistan.
According to reports, CA is insisting it has a deal and is demanding the PCB to honor it. The administration put up a $1 million payday for players reluctant to be involved in the first day-night fixture.
In the past, CA had offered a million-package to the touring side players in order to host the first-ever Test match under lights. Hence, the chances are high that CA can again offer a similar deal to Pakistan players, in an effort to convince them.
