The Gabba hosted two pink ball Tests in the past. Australia won both of these day-night Tests at the Gabba venue. In the first memorable match, Pakistan almost achieved a world record chase but fell short by 39 runs. Asad Shafiq played brilliantly but got out just when his team was close to winning. Australia won the match by scoring 429 and 202 for 5. In response, Pakistan scored 142 and 450.
In another memorable day-night game at the Gabba, Australia’s pace attack dominated Sri Lanka. Australia won this match by an innings and 40 runs. Pat Cummins was the star with the ball for Australia in this match, taking 6 wickets in the second innings.
It is noted that all of Australia’s bowlers have strong records with the pink ball, and the third session of the day has the lowest bowling average in day-night Tests at the Gabba.
