The New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum said that the day-night test matches are to stay after the first-day night test match at the Adelaide Oval. Australia won the match by 3 wickets in an exciting match.

The crowd response to the day-night match was excellent as a total of 123,736 came to watch the match over the three days and the people watching on Television and also administrators also loved it most.

 “It’s a great concept,” McCullum said. “As pink ball cricket evolves as I am sure it will grow into a global game and I think we will see the pitches probably won’t have quite as much grass on it. The thing about day-night Test cricket is it is meant to allow Test match cricket to be played at night time, it is not meant to be to change how Test cricket should play.

“There was a fraction too much grass on it, I think we saw under lights that the pink ball probably responded a little bit much, but I would say that because I am a batter. Overall it was a roaring success and 120,000 people over three days, people are voting with their feet and I think it’s here to stay, which is great.

“In general, spectators would want to see results in games. And will want to see captains start to try and force results. Sitting in changing room after hard-fought Test win, that’s what’s most memorable as a cricketer. Sometimes fighting draws are great and I think we’ll find captains will try and push home some advantage to getting Test victories.”

New Zeland gave a tough fight to the Australian team. New Zealand was defending 187 and Australia looked in control, but New Zealand never gave up and fought till the last run.

The balance between bat and ball is important. In the first two matches the batsmen dominated but in the last test match there was a lot of grass left on the pitch which the bowlers took advantage especially fast bowlers from both sides.
