Auckland Cricket has poured cold water on suggestions that Western Springs could become the home of test cricket in Auckland in the near future.

The suggestion that tests could move from Eden Park to Western Springs came from a Regional Facilities Auckland report to the Auckland council last week, which also mooted a potential move for the Warriors from Mt Smart Stadium.

But Auckland Cricket chief executive Mark Cameron said the organisation isn't planning to move from Eden Park any time soon.

"Auckland Cricket is not seeking to relocate from Eden Park. But in all of that, we're not so naive that we wouldn't consider options.

"We're happy here. We've got a long history here."

Eden Park will host its first test match in seven years when the Black Caps play England in March.

New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White said: "Eden Park is a very, very important venue for us. Going forward it's really important that for NZC to play cricket in its largest populated area."
