Australia have played two day-night Tests against New Zealand and Pakistan, one against South Africa, Pakistan, England and India. In October 2012, the ICC recast the playing conditions for Test matches, permitting day-night Test matches.

The first day-night Test match took place between Australia and New Zealand at the Adelaide Oval on November 27, 2015, 3 years to the day from the first ICC-sanctioned day-night match. In 2015, the oldest and the longest format of the game saw a new invention.

Instead of the red-ball, a pink ball was featured for the first time and Tests were to be played under lights. From the start in 2015 till now, 16 day-night Tests have been played and none of those has witnessed a draw.

Since the inception of day-night Tests in 2015, Australia have played eight matches, the most among all teams and they haven’t lost a single one of those. No other team has managed to achieve this feat. All their eight day-night Tests have been played in their backyard and Adelaide has hosted five out of those eight.

England have won one and lost three in four day-night Test matches played against Australia, New Zealand, West Indies and India.
