BAYSWATER Oval's new lights will be sent to the crease for a Victorian Sub District Cricket Association Twenty20 game on November 13.
Bayswater will play Malvern in the clash which will see the lights get their first "in game" use since being completed during the football season.
Waters captain Sean Flynn said the club hoped to use the lights for all its home matches during the VSDCA Twenty20 competition.
"We have put the lights on for some of our fielding training and they have come up well, it's very bright," he said. "It's exciting, we think it's pretty unique for the area."
Most VSDCA Twenty20 games will start at about 5.15 but Flynn said the Waters expected to start their matches a bit later, at about 6pm to make use of the lights.
The Waters fell short against Box Hill in a one-day game at Box Hill City Oval on Saturday, losing by three runs with their run-chase falling short in the final overs.
Flynn said his young side had learned the value of not giving away runs in the final overs of a bowling innings.
"They got away from us in the last four to five overs of their innings," Flynn said.
"Box Hill ended with 15-20 more runs than we would have liked and that was probably the difference in the match.
"It was a really tight game and in the end we were not quite good enough in the end."
The Waters put Box Hill into bat and had the home side where they wanted it at 5-82 before Andrew Blake (38 not out) and Barrie Frankland (28 not out) got together to lead the team to 5-154 from their 45 overs.
The Waters top-order failed to fire when their innings started with the visitors down to 5-29.
But veteran pair Darryl Stranger (52) and Mark Collins (49) made an 88-run partnership to bring their side back within reach before both were dismissed.
Flynn said the Waters left themselves 11 runs to get in the final over, a tally which proved too great.
"We found out the week before that those extra runs can help you win, this time we saw the other side when they got away from us at the end and it cost us the game."
Flynn commended teenage bowlers Luke Turner (2-18) and Tim Sugumar (1-32) and spinner Tim Emmett.
The Waters play Coburg this week with Flynn and his side looking forward to facing former Australian fast bowler Mick Lewis who leads the line for Coburg. Bayswater hosts Coburg in a one-day match at Bayswater Oval this Saturday at 12.30.
