ISLAMABAD - Pakistan and Australia are on the verge of creating history as the two cricket boards are in negotiations for first-ever day-night Test series later this year.

Pakistan are scheduled to tour Australia for two Tests in November and December this year and both authorities — the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Cricket Australia (CA) — are under consideration to play their two matches in Brisbane and Adelaide.

The Gabba is set to host Sri Lanka under lights this week, coming at a time when the venue is under increasing pressure to deliver on Cricket Australia's expectations.

Recently, India had refused to play under lights in Adelaide when they toured Australia for four Tests, but CA chief executive Kevin Roberts has made it clear he believes that venue should always host a day-night Test, adding to the festive feel.

Similarly, the Men in Green stepped back from playing under flood lights in Dubai during Australia’s tour of United Arab Emirates (UAE).
