What they said

This is a magnificent Indian team which can find a way to win even if they are playing on the snow in Iceland or sand in the Sahara desert. So it does not matter whether any of the players have played earlier with the pink-ball or not. When Day/Night cricket started not many thought it would be successful but look at the huge following it has now, so there’s no reason to believe that day-night Test cricket won’t be successful too.

--Sunil Gavaskar


It is not the only solution to rejuvenate Test cricket, but it is one of the things we need to do. If only we are able to control dew, the pink-ball Test can become an annual feature in India. You make it tough for the bowlers when the ball gets wet and takes the swing away... it (pink ball) is a novelty that will attract people to the stadium and must be tried.      --Rahul Dravid


We are yet to see the movement of the pink ball. But the colour of the ball won’t matter with the current form of Indian pacers.

-- Wriddhiman Saha


A pink-ball Test is like officiating five back-to-back ODIs. So your preparation should be such that you think that you’re standing in five ODIs back-to-back.
