Cricket Australia is going to Invite Pakistan and South Africa for Day Night Test Series. Perth is in the edge to hold the opening Test of summer without precedent for over 20 years as Cricket Australia moves towards double day/night Tests for 2016-17, one each against South Africa and Pakistan.
Brisbane has hosted the first Test of the season every year since 1994, but experts understands that the shunting of the Gabba match to the middle of the programme is a scenario CA has discussed with Queensland Cricket in order to allow for a day/night Test in Brisbane. A report in the Sydney Morning Herald has indicated an announcement to this effect may be imminent.
South Africa had been slated to play four Tests against Australia next summer as indicated by a respective understanding between the two nations, however the CA CEO James Sutherland hailed a few months back that the board had ruled against planning any more than six home Tests.
