Australia are probably the most experienced side when it comes to Day-night Test cricket. They have played eight and won all eight, defeating New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan, England, Sri Lanka and India. And five of those wins have come at the Adelaide Oval, including an eight-wicket win against India a year ago, featuring that infamous 36.

For England, they have won only one out of their four previous Day-night Tests -- an innings and 209-run win against West Indies at Edgbaston in 2017. 

Adelaide was also the venue of the first-ever Day-night meeting between Australia and England in 2017. The hosts won that match by 120 runs. England lost their last Day-night match by ten wickets to India earlier this year.

Interestingly enough, Cummins has played his part in five of Australia's eight pick-ball wins. 


This will be the 353rd meeting in Test cricket between Australia and England. Australia lead the head-to-head series 147-110 with another 95 matches ending in draws. In the last five matches, the record is 2-2. But England have not won a match in Australia in their last 11 attempts, losing ten of those and all heavy defeats.

So, Australia start the match as overwhelming favourites.
