KARACHI: The final of Pakistan’s premier first-class domestic cricket tournament will be played for the first time with a pink ball under floodlights later this month.
The final of the Quaid-e-Azam trophy, named after the founder of the country Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, will be played between Habib Bank and Pakistan International Airlines in Karachi from January 13-17.
For the first time a domestic final will not be played with the usual red ball and will be a day-night affair, Pakistan Cricket Board announced on Monday.
“The new playing format is expected to herald a major change in the domestic cricket structure as it would be the first time that day-night cricket will be used in the longer version of the game and it be played with a pink ball,” PCB said in a statement.
