Since Day/Night cricket was designed to attract the after work crowd, the ECB brains might want to visit a major train station at evening rush hour to see most workers are actually shattered from a days graft and actually want to go home. Last thing workers want to do is sit on hard, plastic seating in conditions where temperatures begin to drop.

If anything, pink ball cricket has a better chance of working in September when bad light becomes a factor. Matches can start at 11am to minimise the dew effect and any leadened skies during late afternoon/early evening simulates twilight conditions.

A match between Hampshire and Yorkshire was mentioned in the article. Hampshire would generally expect around 1700 attendees each day but that number was halved for the pink ball match with only 100 or so in at the close of play.
