The Aussie comms are giving this day night thing absolutely no chance. They have written it off as a joke. Did we use a pink ball in the ashes over here?

Talking now about whether the Aussies would send out a nightwatchman now, surely it should be a morning watchman?

Santner may actually be a worst test spinner than Rashid.

I only caught a little of ABC radio this morning, but they were generally positive, as cricinfo are by the looks of things.

Quite. If anything they were too busy back-slapping about how wonderfully innovative Cricket Australia and anyone related to Australian cricket was in organising this test.

I only saw a bit of it today under the lights but it looked really impressive. The pink ball shone really well. Adelaide is probably the best cricket ground in the world now, so whether it would work in worse facilities I guess we will have to wait and see. Getting 45,000 people is impressive too, even if a lot is down to the novelty. I think it is an extremely positive development for the game.

Yeah, I didn't see too much of it either but what I did see looked good. Certainly the cricket was of a decent standard, although the Kiwis will be regretting their batting collapse to slip to a poor score on a good surface.

They were offering evening tickets for $20. Not sure if that will be a permanent offer, but great if it is. 10 for 2-3 hours of international sport after work seems good value.

NZ have completely lost the plot after that Lyon non-decision.

Quite a falling apart in trying to take the last two wickets but still a pretty even match state, with Starc out of the attack with a stress fracture (how they let him score so many runs on one foot, I don't know).

The how is by bowling a spinner at him and letting him hoik 20 off an over. The why is a bit more difficult.

Nz in trouble now.

Peter Siddle reviews an lbw which looked outside the line to me. Umpire's call so decision stayed not out. He did not accept the decision and complained. It would have been a guess to give that out. I can't believe Warner was the peacemaker.

Haha. See that fielding by the Oz sub? Brilliant. It turns out he is the team physio or something. Wtf?

Masseur I think. He did play second XI cricket in 2008, according to cricinfo. Seems extremely odd and amateurish.

Charity auction, apparently. Not sure how I feel about that. It cheapens test cricket a bit, I think.

It's like a throwback to England's old tours of the subcontinent when sickness and injury sometimes resulted in journos having to field in the provincial matches.

Years ago, I went down to Bath to watch Somerset v Kent in the CC. One of our lot copped an injury so the twelfth man came on, but then someone else went crook. The bloke who did the 'Kent Calling' radio commentary ended up coming on to field whilst phone calls were made and the nearest proper Kent club player was rushed in. At one point, I turned to my friend and said "If anyone else goes down, it could be you or me out there next".

High scores at the Adelaide Oval after 2010

620/5d - 2010 v England
604/7d - 2012 v India
570/9d - 2013 v England
550 - 2012 South Africa
517/7d - 2014 India

Why the low scores in this match? Is it the ball?

Judging by what the commentators have been saying (it's on 5 live sports extra) the ball has been swinging fairly reliably during the evening. Dunno about the rest of the day though.

Whether that's the case or not, there's been plenty of wickets falling during the day too.

the third umpire is copping the flack for that decision but as the batsman was walking the on field umpire should have given it.
