Sightscreen Will Play A Big Role in Pink-Ball Test

The white sightscreen will be a very important part of the pink-ball Test between India and Bangladesh in the Eden Gardens.

Prior to the historic Day-Night Test in the Eden Gardens, the whole Indian squad trained with the pink ball for the first time. The team still has a lot of unknowns to answer before the actual match begins.

The Men in Blue has set up a makeshift white sightscreen in front of their nets during their training. They are looking to find out how the batsmen would spot the pink ball with the backdrop. India’s batsmen took turns in the batting sessions and have spotted the ball well. 

The practice was critical for the team, especially when the twilight zone comes into play. Floodlights were in full force when the dark of the night engulfed the stadium.

Players are wary of the pink ball’s effect on the match. There has been a mix of excitement and wariness which has been a general feeling for most of the players. The conditions of the match and the ball are all new things to Bangladesh, which might give the Men in Blue a slight advantage.

The cricket odds for India in the Test Series is at -5000, while Bangladesh has 1600. Stay on track with the latest cricket odds only on Betwala.
