Australia and New Zealand face off at the Adelaide Oval under lights from tomorrow in a match that has piqued the interest of fans and cricketers across the world.
A number of the sport's top global officials will be among a bumper crowd expected during the opening days and Cricket Australia has already sounded out Pakistan's cricket board about holding a similar fixture next year.
Players from both teams have played practice matches under lights to get to grips with the pink ball, developed and tested for years for the purpose of day-night Tests.
But in many ways, the game will be a leap into the unknown for both teams and their captains.
McCullum said he was excited by the prospect of playing in Adelaide, despite the prospect of learning tactics on the run when the floodlights turn on.

"I think people are voting with their feet," he told reporters today of the healthy ticket sales for the match.
"For us to play in front of 40,000-odd people in a Test match is pretty amazing so we're really, really excited about it,” he added.
