Pakistan will warm up for their first day-night Test against Australia with a match under lights in the tropical city of Cairns, Cricket Australia said Friday.
The world number one Test team will play a Cricket Australia XI in Queensland’s far north from December 8-10.
The match will feature a pink ball and provide Pakistan with their major lead-up game to the first Test against Steve
Smith’s Australians at Brisbane’s Gabba stadium from December 15-19.
Day-night Tests using a pink ball are a central part of Australia’s home international schedule for 2016-17, which
also includes hosting South Africa. It will be the first international match in Cairns since the resort town hosted Tests against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in 2003 and 2004.
