Sutherland demands ICC see the light

2:01 pm on 3 December 2011

The light meter has become a tool of torment, prompting Cricket Australia to call for changes to its use after it robbed fans of an intriguing last hour at the Gabba on Friday.

For the sixth straight full day of Test cricket for Australia's players, they were sent off the field early, with the home side 154 for three in reply to New Zealand's 295, due to dimming light.

With Pakistan umpires Aleem Dar and Asad Rauf booed off the ground, frustrated CA boss James Sutherland spoke to match referee Andrew Pycroft before announcing he'd take the issue to the International Cricket Council.

Sutherland called for the ICC to review "bad light" laws before more fans were turned off Test cricket by technology.
