Brendon McCullumA new chapter will be written in Cricket history as the first ever day-night Test match will be played between Australia and New Zealand at the Adelaide Oval from Friday, 27th November. It mustn’t be forgotten amidst the euphoria that the series is on the line for the visitors and we will be letting you know what we think in our cricket betting tips article.

Australia lead the three-match series 1-0 after a comprehensive win in the opening match. Runs from both the sides at the WACA meant that the second Test was a high-scoring draw opening up the third Test to be a high stakes match for the Kiwis.

The hosts have already reclaimed the Trans-Tasman Trophy – being the holders and holding an unassailable lead, but they will feel undone if they lose at Adelaide. Even in the drawn match at the WACA, rain interruption on the fifth day dampened the hosts’ ideas of forcing a result.

Australian batsmen dominated the series with the Kiwis unable to bowl them out even once so far this series. David Warner is amassing runs in tons at the top of the order and even a subdued Steve Smith hasn’t really been required at all for the Aussies. The retirement of Mitchell Johnson opens the door for the tireless Peter Siddle who should relish the environment.

For New Zealand, it’s been a case of too many lows and very few highs. Kane Williamson was the lone battler until Ross Taylor gave him support in the second Test. The poor starts by the openers is hurting them badly, as is the form of their talisman Brendan McCullum.

Bowling remains a worry with the Kiwis unable to dislodge Warner or stop the flow of runs from his bat. The pink ball and the swing under lights could come to their rescue but all will depend on the fitness of Trent Boult. Their premier fast bowler has been struggling throughout the series with a dramatic decrease in pace not helping him either.

It remains to be seen if Warner can continue with his antics under the lights and the pink ball. Adam Voges is experienced under these conditions and could be a better punt at odds of $6.00 at Sportsbet to be the home side’s best batsman. Who else but Williamson at odds of $2.88 at Sportsbet could be the Kiwis’ best bet? Back the Kiwis at odds of $4.25 at Sportsbet to turn the tables on Australia and win the match.

Be a part of history and enjoy the change of conditions. Will the change bring a change of luck for the Kiwis?
