BCB official Akram Khan said that the board will take time to think about the pink ball test proposal from BCCI. He said that the BCB board received a letter from BCCI and a collective decision will be made by the board and then only they will let the BCCI know.
Day Night Test Match India vs Bangladesh – BCB’s CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhary said that the decision cannot be made and approved by the BCB board. This will be a collective decision and it will depend on the players as well. Firstly they will have to take consent from the players and the team about this proposal as this will be a technical matter from the skill point of view. The players and the team management will need to prepare with a different point of view for the pink ball assignment.
This proposal is from India and that too after Sourav Ganguly became the new President of the BCCI. Ganguly has the liking of the pink ball test and skipper Virat Kohli also agreed to play the pink ball test match. This decision was a complete U-turn from the one in 2018. That year, the Indians rejected to play the day-night test match in Adelaide, Australia. They stated the reason that they needed to practice more with the pink ball before they adjusted to conditions.
