Australia beats New Zealand in first day-night test

29 November 2015, 17:04

Adelaide — Australia won the first ever day-night cricket test by 3 wickets against New Zealand Sunday, with the tail-ender Peter Siddle ushering the hosts to victory in a dramatic finish under lights.

The match was over inside three days, which hasn't happened in an Adelaide Oval test since 1951 and which highlighted the differences of using the pink ball and playing under lights in the longest format of the game.

Ball dominated bat, particularly in the twilight sessions, and 25 wickets tumbled on the first two days before New Zealand resumed Sunday at 116-5, an overall lead of 94. Josh Hazlewood returned a career-best 6-70 to bowl the New Zealanders out for 208 and set up the target. New Zealand paceman Trent Boult took 5-60, including Shaun Marsh for 49, to ensure a tense last session.
