Yorkshire want to host County Championship day-night match

Headingley

Yorkshire have said they would be interested in hosting a day-night game in the County Championship in 2017.

England will play their first day-night Test when they host West Indies at Edgbaston in August.

Yorkshire say they were asked by England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) about their willingness to move one of the Championship games at Headingley and would be interested in doing so.

The club’s chief executive Mark Arthur called it a “great opportunity”.
