It will be a day-night thriller

The Cricket Paper - - NEWS & VIEWS -

A DAY-NIGHT Ashes Test in Ade­laide... may it be the first of many.

The re­de­vel­oped Ade­laide Oval could be­come one of the great caul­drons for fu­ture Ashes magic to be played out be­tween Aus­tralia and Eng­land.

I be­lieve next year’s tour will be far more en­ter­tain­ing than the last, where both teams took it in turn to play way be­low the stan­dard of an Ashes se­ries in an un­bal­anced com­pe­ti­tion.

By next year, the Aussies should have ar­rested their re­cent freefall and that will make the Ade­laide Test all the more en­thralling given the Baggy Green’s im­pres­sive his­tory at the Gabba and the WACA.
