It’s an interesting one, do we look at Day/nighters being 4 day matches? Does anyone know if any have gone 5 days? I love cricket when Batters have to fight for runs but playing 5 day tests in these conditions completely takes the draw out of the equation, at least in a 4 day game we’d probably want to be bowling tomorrow whereas now there’s absolutely no time pressure.
This is a brilliant pitch for a day test that offers a bit for the bowler but a bit for the batter when they get in, I’d love all day pitches to be like that. But for a day nighter it’s probably a bit over the top, probably need to roll out roads for 5 day day nighters as the night session is still gonna have a lot for the bowler so at least give something for the batter during the day.
This test between two evenly placed sides and the winner of the toss wins, if we bowled first England would have been all out for 120 tops and then would have had to bat again tonight and would probably be 5 down, us batting first has evened the test match up a huge amount and we’re still wayyyy in front
Of the 9 completed pink ball tests in this country 3 have gone into day 5, 3 have been done inside 3 days and the remaining 3 were decided during day 4.
