Cricket ACT is considering playing ACT Meteors matches under lights in the Women's National Cricket League next summer following the success of Wednesday's historic first one-day international in the nation's capital.
The John Gallop Cup final is all but guaranteed to become a day-night game, allowing Wests UC and Eastlake cricket clubs to get a taste of what it was like for Australia and the West Indies.
It will give added excitement to the final of the local one-day competition on February 17.
Cricket ACT chief executive Mark Vergano was just waiting for final approval from the venue's owner, the ACT government.
''The players have really leapt at this potential opportunity, we've just got to do a little more work with the government to put that in place,'' Vergano said on Thursday.
''That will be in itself another test to look at the next level of lighting and seeing how the ground reacts.
''I know the local players are certainly looking forward to that.''
Cricket ACT will cover the cost of running the lights, which will be less than the $400 per hour it costs for television-quality lighting. The lights don't need to be as bright when there are no TV cameras.
Vergano said the lights opened up a range of options for next summer.
