India vs Bangladesh, 2nd Test

Virat Kohli recognised the challenges of playing with a pink ball ahead of the day-night Test match against Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Friday, claiming dew will be a defining factor in the second Test of the series. Eventually, it had to happen. "We just have to play it as it comes", said the 32-year-old. "We have not played any first class game with the pink ball", the skipper said.

Former Australia umpire Simon Taufel said "adaptability" will be key for players and officials when the colour of the ball will appear to change during twilight. We didn't really think it was logical from that point of view. You can plan in advance. "We haven't done anything differently", he said. Gambhir also wrote that it signifies the growing respect for Bangladesh cricket that they are part of this historic occasion instead of any big team.

Cricket made its mark in sporting culture for the first time way back in the 1800s with the introduction of Test cricket. With red and white balls, you have an idea of how fast the ball is coming down but with the pink ball, if you don't look at the ball until your palms, it's gone. In Indore, the batsmen were too cautious in the nets while the bowlers looked to be working on how to cope with the new ball that is expected to have lateral movement. "Then eventually going on and playing an important Test series anywhere in the world", the Indian captain said. It's much more hardened and felt a little heavy although there won't be much of a difference in terms of weight. Most guys' limited experience has been around the Kookaburra one.

"The decision making has to very precise".

India went through fielding drills as well, with Rohit Sharma even picking up a minor knock on his hand while catching at slips. The extra edge it travels faster.

"It's going to be a challenge and it should excite everyone. We are excited for the new challenge". So, spinners won't become redundant in pink ball Test matches. "And it makes it even more hard with not having a great visibility or able to pick that colour".

Comparing the first pink-ball Test in India to the revolutionary 1992 World Cup in Australia, which was the first edition played in coloured clothing with a white ball, Gambhir hoped that inaugural day-night Test on Indian soil ends up being a spectacle as well.

"The last time such an excitement was seen during the India-Pakistan T20. I stood in a pink-ball trial at Lord's and it was different", Taufel told AFP. "It was packed stadium and the atmosphere is similar", he said.
