Cricket Australia is hopeful The Day-Night Test becomes a permanent feature in Adelaide on the opening day of the ongoing Test against India, after the next season. Adelaide Oval noted the lowest 1. Day participation (23.802) since the stadium's redevelopment in 2013.
The venue has hosted a pink ball test every year since 2015, but BCCI struck a barricade in its efforts to continue the tradition after declining its demand for the Day-Night Test. Following the warm Adelaide weather and the sneaky scandal of the ball, there were other mitigating conditions, including some general frustration with the Australian national team, but Kevin Roberts, chairman of the board, believes that by the end of the day, around 15,000 test costs will drop.
"Of course we lost that particular group of fans [who like Day-Night Tests] For this Test. We look forward to the day and night test that will return to Adelaide, ’Roberts told SEN Radio. Bek Look at the fans embracing him. I'm an advocate of daytime testing cricket, but it doesn't matter what I think.
According to the current ICC rules, the tour team may refuse the fixture demands, but Roberts hopes that the BCCI will change its current position in the Day-Night fixture (India has not yet played a D / N Test) and decided to play the new pink-ball Test. The next visit to India is here. "I hope so. We will take one step at a time. We adopt a different opinion than this Test match, but over time, the emotions from fans, we hope to have a day-night Test," I said.
Cricket Australia was particularly impressed by the strong India that abducted the Test. On Thursday (December 5th), the participation in the series opening was lower than in 2014, with 25, 619 people participating in a recent visit to India. On the other hand, the participation of the three pink ball matches on the opening day was 47,441 (New Zealand in 2015), 32,225 (South Africa in 2016), and 55,000 (versus England in 2017).
Meanwhile, the trend of selling early tickets for the opening exam at the new 60,000-seater Perth stadium is not very promising, and Cricket Australia hopes that ending the nail bit to the first Test will help attract more spectators to the venue.
"I suggest something about not having a regular fixture on the calendar, a new venue, close to Christmas. I hope it stays here for five days." [in Adelaide] and the cricket community is encouraged to participate in larger numbers than we suspect.
