Guess? Hope for the best? It might be the case that the first ever day-night Test match in Adelaide is one of those occasional ‘good tosses to lose’, because then at least you don’t have to guess what is or isn’t the best thing to do.
It’s not quite the same as facing or bowling with the new pink Kookaburra ball, but my own experience with the most important element of the day-night Test cricket revolution wasn’t brilliant.
Many, many angry words have been thumped through keyboards and touchscreens about the Australian cricket team selectors over the last few days. When it comes to the career of Shaun Marsh, there typically are no other words to use.
After Australia racked up 2-416 in Perth last Friday, the first day of the second Test against New Zealand, I’m sure I wasn’t the only pundit or commentator putting the line through the Black Caps.
The end of the lost Ashes series in July was always going to bring with it selection angst for some players, and the Australian selectors.
Just when it was looking like New Zealand might head to lunch with a few wickets still in the sheds, Nathan Lyon and Mitchell Marsh stumped up with the key Black Caps wickets shortly after drinks in the first session.
