Tony Shepherd, who is the chairman of SCG Trust, said in his statement that the Sydney Cricket ground would bid to bring a day-night Test to Sydney. SCG has hosted test matches during the day over 137 years. Now the Trust wants to bring a pink ball game to the ground. Shepherd said that the Trust is interested in bringing this change. In 2016 the Trust tried to host the second Test of the summer, but it was not possible at that time as it was not possible as it would have impacted SCG during the redevelopment of the football stadium, which is expected to complete by 2022. The revolution of day-night Test matches has reached many grounds, and it has been successful to date, as seen with the rating and fans on the ground. The Test matches of Sydney and Melbourne are going to take place in the holiday period. That is why they were not considered as a candidate for day-night Tests. The first pink-ball Test in Australia took place in 2015 in Adelaide.
