Indian team captain Virat Kohli has said that playing a Test match with a pink ball is generally the opposite of a Test match played with a red ball. The four-match Test series between Australia and India starts on Thursday. The first Test match of the series will be played in the day and night format at the Adelaide Oval ground.
Kohli said that preparing to play with pink ball is very difficult, because it has many aspects. The captain said that he will have to play according to the condition of the Adelaide Oval ground. Kohli said on Wednesday, “I don’t think you can plan things in Test cricket. Test cricket always happens in the same way that you have to play according to the situation you face and use your best ability. You have to understand when you have to attack, when to defend, when to wicket.
The pink ball test match brings with it many things, such as evening time, when it is very difficult to bat. It is difficult to bowl in the first session and then the bowlers get help at night. He said, “When you compare it with a common Test match, it is very different. We are ready to go on the field with our plan in every situation. Planning is necessary, but you cannot plan anything in advance. In particular, there is a day-night test in which many things happen.
