Indian cricket board chief Sourav Ganguly believes pink-ball tests are here to stay and wants the team under Virat Kohli to play at least one such match in every series.
India became the last major cricket nation to embrace day-night tests when they hosted neighbours Bangladesh in front of a sellout crowd at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens last month.
“I am pretty upbeat about it,” Ganguly told ‘The Week’ magazine. “I feel this is the way forward. Not every test, but at least one test in a series. I will share my experiences with the board and we will try and implement it in other places.”
“After this, everyone is ready. Nobody wants to play test cricket in front of 5,000 people,” added the former India captain.
