it’s a challenge to play with the pink ball: R Ashwin
“Every other Test-playing nation generally has a certain pattern of playing Test cricket. They do know how the venue behaves, how the pitch behaves, how the games pan out. That’s perennially how Test cricket works in most parts of the world. Even in India, it was no exception.
“The pink ball Test match is a great welcoming sign. India as a Test-playing country, we needed to play the Day-Night Test. The office-going crowd which couldn’t catch Test cricket can now do so,” Ashwin said when asked about his opinion.
“Obviously, it’s a challenge to play with the pink ball. The ball has a lot more lacquer. Personally I think it’s the right direction we have taken, and hopefully, the Test match will be a historic moment and it will be the start of many more to come.”
“For starters, you can’t sleep at 9 o’clock anymore in the night. Apparently, the game is starting at 1 pm.
“I’ve never played a pink ball game. I didn’t play the Duleep Trophy that happened a few years ago. I haven’t even bowled a single ball with the pink ball. Obviously, I just saw it. Sometimes I don’t understand if its orange or pink, still coming to terms with that,” he said.
“I think having played in Kolkata before, it does a lot more in the evening and the pitch is re-laid. It does move a little bit with the white ball so you can imagine what could happen with the pink or orange ball. We are all little wary but excited about the game,” he said.
