Arbit Stats #47: Pink Ball

Test Match #2190
Australia vs New Zealand, Adelaide

It is the first international cricket game to be played with a pink ball. 
Enough hype already generated. And it also generated its own series of firsts, for the trivia aficionados.

Mitchell Starc - 1st Bowler to bowl with a pink ball.
Martin Guptill - 1st Batsman to face a delivery in pink. 
Martin Guptill - Also the 1st Batsman to be out with a pink ball.
Josh Hazelwood - 1st bowler to take a pink ball wicket.

In the meantime, Australia have now emerged victorious in
  • 1st Test Match (vs England)
  • 1st ODI (vs England)
  • 1st Day-night ODI (vs West Indies)
  • 1st Indoor ODI (vs South Africa)
  • Ist T20I (vs New Zealand)
  • 1st Day-Night Test (vs New Zealand)
A sign of Aussie willingness for innovation and their domination.
