Karachi - Pakistan will experiment with a pink ball in the final of their premier first-class cricket tournament on Tuesday.

"The final of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, Pakistan's premier first-class tournament, will be played with a pink ball, under floodlights", the Pakistan Cricket Board announced on Monday.

Pakistan International Airlines take on Zarai Taraqiati Bank Ltd in the final, to be played from December 20-24. Last year's final was also played under lights, but with an orange ball.

Pink is widely regarded as the most suitable colour under floodlights.

The Marylebone Cricket Club, the custodian of the laws of the game, has advocated the use of a pink ball for day-night Test cricket.

An English county championship match between Kent and Glamorgan was played with a pink ball earlier this year.
