MELBOURNE, April 7 (Xinhua) -- The Western Australian city of Perth will host the opening Test of Australia's 2016-17 summer cricket series, in what is shaping as a dramatic shake-up of the schedule.

  Cricket Australia (CA) is yet to officially finalize the timeline for its international, domestic and Big Bash League (BBL) fixtures.

  However, the organization is expected to dump the Brisbane Test as the national side's season springboard in order to trial a second day-night Test match, following the raging success of the concept last summer.

  Last year, Adelaide Oval staged the first day-night Test match against trans-Tasman challengers, New Zealand.

  The day-night format, which featured a pink ball instead of the traditional red variety to help batsman to see under floodlights, proved an instant hit with 47,441 people attending the opening day to witness the historic occasion.

  On Thursday, Fairfax Media reported that the Perth Test - usually the third of the summer - would be brought forward to allow for day-night Tests to be played against each of Australia's 2016-17 touring sides, South Africa and Pakistan.

  Moving Brisbane to the Fourth Test slot will give both touring sides a taste of the new night format, with Australia closing out its first leg of the summer against South Africa in Adelaide before starting the Pakistan series in Brisbane not long after.

  Outside of Australia's Ashes clashes against bitter rival England, Brisbane has struggled to pull in respectable crowd numbers for more than a decade. Although last year the Gabba set attendance record for a game against New Zealand, the clash only pulled in 53,572 fans across the five days.

  In another plus for Australia's eastern-coast cricket viewers - and national rights broadcaster, the Nine Network - half of the summer's Tests are now effectively day-night TV games due to differences in time-zones.

  Over the course of the six-Test summer, Australia will play three five-day matches apiece against South Africa and Pakistan.

  The South Africans, third in the International Cricket Council's Test rankings, will meet Australia in Perth, Hobart and Adelaide.

  Fourth-ranked Pakistan will then backend the summer starting with the new day-night clash in Brisbane, before completing the series against Australia - which ascended to the No. 1 Test ranking in February - with marquee Tests in Melbourne and Sydney.

STOCKHOLM, Jan. 7 (Xinhua) -- A man has died after picking up what police believe was a hand grenade outside a subway station in southern Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, Swedish Television reported on Sunday.

A woman was also injured in the blast Nike Air Max 96 Scontate , at the Varby Gard station in the municipality of Huddinge, which is about 11 kilometers south of Stockholm.

"These two people cycled past the object and stopped to see what was on the ground. The woman who was with the man was several meters behind him," police officer Lars Alvarsjo told Swedish Television. "I don't dare imagine what would have happened if one or several children had found the hand grenade. This is totally unacceptable," Alvarsjo said.

According to Alvarsjo Nike Air Max 270 Scontate , hand grenades are increasingly used by criminal networks in Sweden. "It is surprising they have not detonated earlier," Alvarsjo said.

Police told news agency TT that the killed man, who was in his 60s, and the injured woman Nike Air Max 360 Scontate , who is in her 40s, were a couple. The report quoted police sources as saying that there was no indication that the explosion was directed against any individuals or property. The man and the woman simply "were at the wrong place and at the wrong time".

Police also said the man died at the hospital and that the woman was also taken to the hospital and had wounds on her face and both legs.

On Sunday morning, police searched the area around the station, which was cordoned off as a bomb squad was called in to carry out an investigation.

Sven-Erik Olsson of the Stockholm police at first told reporters that he could not say what kind of explosive material was used or how powerful the explosion was Nike Air Max Flair Scontate , only that it was "powerful enough for the couple to be taken to hospital".

The Varby Gard station was cleared on Sunday and the Stockholm subway was partially shut, with replacement buses serving part of the route on the affected line.

Police patrols will remain in the area throughout Sunday night and Monday, with the municipality offering crisis counseling to local residents. Police also called for witnesses to step forward with any information.

So far, police did not say whether the explosion was a terror-related incident.
