SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Nervous mayors and county officials are piping up about the Illinois budget crisis, with one city even threatening to turn off the lights at a state garage because of an unpaid electric bill.
Cricket Australia said Tuesday they will schedule more day-night Test matches following the overwhelming success of the recent trial against New Zealand staged under lights in Adelaide. A total attendance of 123,736 fans over three days at Adelaide Oval along with 3.19 million prime-time viewers watching free-to-air television coverage on Sunday's final day confirmed the strong acceptance of the day-night Test played with a pink ball, CA chief executive James Sutherland said. “At Cricket Australia we are about putting fans first so we are delighted that so many have embraced the day-night Test concept,” he said.
