The cloudy overcast morning and passing showers set the ball rolling for the Izaara Day-Night Eights tournament which kicked off on schedule at 12.40pm, with the 8 participating teams split into 2 groups of 4 each. This tournament had the distinction of being the first of its kind. The first ever, proper Day-Night cricket tournament to be held in Singapore.

The wet ground conditions and the occasional light rain did not dampen the spirits of the enthusiastic teams as they carried on with some entertaining and competitive cricket.
