Nov 3 – New Faces, Pink Balls

Quick note about the first test in Brisbane. With retirements, banishments and fadings-away, there are some new faces in the team:

  • ¬†ThirdDegreeBurns returns to have another go, having drawn the short straw to replace UnLucky as Puff’s opening partner
  • Mr X returns to join ThirdDegree at the crease at first drop after Puff has flamed out to mid-off from a crafty New Zealander’s slower ball.

The schedule is pretty tight:

  • 5-9 November – First Test – Brisbane
  • 13-17 November – Second Test – Perth
  • 27 Nov – 1 Dec – Third Test – Adelaide

The last of these three tests is the first ever day’night test, being played with a pink ball under lights. Trapper Smith was seeing it ok…

We’ll see if the Adelaide crowd can tear themselves away from what ever you do in Adelaide at night and make the experiment a success.
