History will happen starting Friday afternoon at the Adelaide Oval when the first ever day-night test match will be played. Australia will host the New Zealand Black Caps in the third and final Test, with the winner taking home the 2015 Trans-Tasman Trophy.
The series currently sits in the favour of Australia after a dominant display at the Gabba in Brisbane, but with the Black Caps showing fight in Perth, this Adelaide test shapes up be a ripper and you need not miss a minute of the action between these great rivals and other Test Matches on the week using the details provided here.
Australia vs NZ Day-Night Cricket Test 2015
These two sides kicked off their Summer at the Gabba in Brisbane, where Australia completely dominated the Black Caps winning by 208, resulting in questions being asked about New Zealand such as just how good are they, and whether or not they can keep up with the Aussies. Well they certainly did that in the second test at the WACA in Perth, with the match being drawn. The pitch was a haven for batsmen and the bowlers really had zero impact on the match. Hopefully the pitch gives something for both bat and ball in Adelaide.
Australia have held the Trans-Tasman trophy since 1992-93, but New Zealand are closing the gap, so this promises to be one of the best sporting events of the summer and you can find the Australia v NZ Day Night Test on Free to Air TV.

Australia v Black Caps Cricket Test Preview
The jury was well and truly out on Australia after a disastrous Ashes campaign against team England, which saw captain Michael Clarke retire from International Cricket along with opening batsman Chris Rogers. New blood was brought in for the first test at the Gabba and given how well New Zealand have played in 2015, the Kiwis were given some hope. Joe Burns and David Warner took care of those hops with the bat on the opening day, both smashing centuries and laying the platform for a 208 run win.
Both again performed well with the bat in Perth, with Warner hitting 255 in the first innings, again displaying the favourness of the pitch towards batsman. The match ended up being drawn and it was the last time we saw fast bowler Mitchell Johnson wear the baggy green, with the left armer calling time on a wonderful career.
The New Zealand Black Caps were after one thing in this series- redemption. Australia absolutely smashed them in the World Cup Final earlier this year and the Kiwis had been counting down the days til the first day at the Gabba. But it just all went wrong there, with some very poor bowling from the quicks allowing Australia to impose themselves and score a dominant win. The Kiwis then went to the WACA and performed much better, with Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor both playing superbly with the bat in guiding the Black Caps to a draw.
