After a clinical win in the first test by an innings, the Indian team has stayed in Indore to get used to the pink ball under the light for the Day-Night Test.
Meanwhile, India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was seen bowling with his left hand during the team’s practice session. He was seen imitating Sri Lankan legend Sanath Jayasuriya in a playful manner.
Ashwin has come up trying a new bowling style with the pink ball. Recently, Ashwin said at a press conference that it was very challenging to bowl with the pink ball.
“Obviously, it’s a challenge to play with the pink ball. The ball has a lot more lacquer. 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,” – Ashwin admitted after the first day’s play against Bangladesh.
