Sourav Ganguly wants India to play pink ball tests in each series
NEW DELHI: head of the Indian cricket board Sourav Ganguly he thinks the pink ball tests are here to stay and he wants the team to be under virat Kohli Play at least one of those matches in each series.
India became the last major cricket nation to adopt day and night tests when they welcomed Bangladesh residents in front of a crowded crowd in Kolkata's Eden Gardens last month.
As chairman of the Control Board of Cricket in India (BCCI), Ganguly's push led India to launch itself to daytime tests, which experts believe they can address Cricket test The decrease in attendance in most places.
I am quite optimistic about it, Ganguly told the magazine 'The Week'.
I feel that this is the way to go. Not all tests, but at least one test in a series.
The richest cricket board in the world aggressively traded the first test of the pink ball of India, illuminating the prominent places of the city in pink and, in general, creating a buzz around the party.
Encouraged by participation in Kolkata, other Indian places are now ready to test day and night, Ganguly said.
I will share my experiences with the board and we will try to implement it in other places.
"After this, everyone is ready. Nobody wants to play Cricket test in front of 5,000 people," added the former India captain.
Kohli has welcomed innovation, but said pink ball testing should be an exception and not the rule.
I think (the day and night tests) can be something unique, it shouldn't be a normal scenario, Kohli said in Calcutta on the eve of the test match.
