WHAT DID THEY SAY?
At the pre-match press conference, India captain Virat Kohli was understandably unsure of the dew factor under the lights and the difficulties of using a pink ball in such conditions While appreciating the challenges of playing with a pink ball under lights, Kohli hoped that day-night test matches would not become the future of test cricket.”I think this can be a one-off thing but it should not be a regular scenario. In my opinion, this should not become the only way Test cricket is played. Because then you are losing out on that nervousness of the first session in the morning.”
“You can bring excitement into Test cricket but you can’t purely make Test cricket based on just entertaining people. Entertainment of Test cricket lies in the fact that a batsman is trying to survive a session and the bowler is trying to set up a batsman (to get him) out. If people don’t respond to that, too bad.”
