Pink-Ball Tests

Whether you are a very big fan of cricket or not, you need to understand the concept of pink-ball tests, which has been too popular in the cricket world recently. In order to make cricket easier for players, pink balls were introduced. These balls are more visible in the night especially under the floodlights. However, test cricket is still occurring under red or white balls, which seems to offend many cricket players and teams.

During the recent test series amongst Australia and New Zealand, Kiwis demanded international players to get accustomed to pink balls or the scope of international test cricket is bleak. On the other hand, there are players, which also believe that pink balls in test cricket undermine the original tradition of test cricket in the world. This is a matter of both debate and worry as more players and cricket lovers are interested in international 5-day test matches to be played internationally.

According to the experts, test cricket is integral to day and night matches. In order to keep the tradition of test matches alive, one has to welcome day and night matches readily. Opposition believes that matches that occur in floodlights are more fan-friendly. Eventually, cricket is about its fans so players should be more interested in something that is appreciated by their fans.

In past, various teams have denied playing day and night matches due to ball visibility but experts believe that considering the coming years and the future of cricket, day and night test matches seem inevitable.
