Mumbai, Feb 18: Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly, who heads the Technical Committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India on Friday, has recommended the use of floodlights during the Test matches in India.
Earlier, floodlights were used during Test matches but now due to various reasons the practice has been discontinued.
Board secretary and meeting convenor Sanjay Jagdale suggested that "floodlights will be used during Test matches, if required, wherever the facility exists," after the meeting on Friday.
Though the committee's suggestion needs to be ratified by all-powerful Working Committe of the board when they meet next time.
The Technical committee meeting was attended by Ganguly, Kris Srikkanth (Chairman of the board s senior selection panel), Roger Binny (former Test cricketer), the five zonal representatives (Venkatapathy Raju, Shantanu Sugwekar, Arup Bhattacharjee, Chetan Chauhan, Rahul Sapru), Jagdale, BCCI CAO Prof. Ratnakar Shetty and BCCI's manager of cricket operations Suru Nayak.
However, Umpires' representative V K Ramaswamy did not attend the meeting.
