ABU DHABI The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has been offered to make its home base in Abu Dhabi for three years, this was revealed by Dilawar Mani, the Abu Dhabi Cricket Club (ADCC) chief. Speaking to this scribe at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium here, he said, we have offered them to host all their international matches till prevailing condition in Pakistan is improved. Even the three Test matches against New Zealand had also been suggested to be played here. The offer is yet to be accepted by the PCB although in the present situation, where all international teams are refusing to travel to Pakistan. The team will be travelling (from Dubai on Sunday) to New Zealand where Pakistan is scheduled to play their three home Test matches. Shaikh Nahyan, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research and also the ADCC chairman, is passionate about the game and will be more than happy to see the first time coloured ball game in the country. Next seasons curtain-raiser between MCC and Durham, the champion county, at Lords could break with more than 100 years of tradition and be played with pink balls under floodlights in Abu Dhabi. The fate of the first ever Test match between England and visiting Bangladesh teams under floodlights at Lords still hangs in balance. The MCC also wants to use pink balls under lights in the May 2010 Lords Test against Bangladesh, in what could be crickets first day-night Test. However, certain countries have reservations over playing with the coloured balls. Regarding the day/night Test match, I am unfortunately unable to tell you much, other than discussion are still ongoing. The MCC is working hard with cricket ball manufacturers to develop a coloured ball that can last for up to 100 overs. It will then be up to the individual boards involved to decide if they want to play a day/night game, Glean Read, the MCC official said from Lords. ICCs Elite Panel umpire Simon Taufel has been impressed with the pink ball thats being trialled by the MCC. It is 30 years since white balls were first introduced in Australia during the second year of the Kerry Packers World Series Cricket (WSC). White balls discoloured by the grass are difficult for fielders and batsmen to see in certain light conditions. They also scuff up quickly and have to be mandatory replaced after 35 overs in one-day matches.
