Bay Oval misses out on international test match

Bay Oval officials hopes of staging an inaugural test next summer — possibly even a day-night fixture — have been dashed.

Instead the Mount Maunganui venue will have two ODIs against Sri Lanka in early January; two more against India, a women's international against the Indians and a four-day India A vs New Zealand A fixture, plus three 50-over matches against the same opponents.

It's a busy programme, but missing the big cherry on top.

New Zealand had been hoping to host its second day-night test to follow the win over England at Eden Park last season, but had it gone ahead if would have been at Hamilton's Seddon Park against Bangladesh.
