The runs, scored against the pink ball, which had most batsmen battling, are all the more essential. While most players attempted to arrange the crease development in the main innings, Abhinav searched agreeable for his 77. The 26-year-old said the pink ball is a blend of the white and red ball. "The pink ball doesn't go old and it hits on the bat pleasantly," he told sources from Greater Noida. "There is crease development and a bit swing when the ball is new.
In any case, when the crease wears off, batting gets to be simpler. I would say it is a blend of white and red ball. It has the sparkle of a white ball and the hardness of a red Kookaburra ball. Since the wicket was somewhat clammy on the main day, 17 wickets fell." While the pink ball was another experience for the players, so was playing under lights.
Abhinav said he didn't have any issue in locating the pink ball. "To be completely forthright, when I was honing at the nets before the match, I had a few issues in seeing the ball. Notwithstanding, amid the match, I didn't confront any issues as the pink shading truly emerged. I was timing the ball and getting into great positions."
