Wicket-keeping in pink-ball is much challenging – Wriddhiman Saha


There have been much speculations going on about the pink-ball ahead of the first-ever pink-ball Test in the history of India and Bangladesh on Friday, November 22 at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Indian wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha thinks that wicket-keeping in pink-ball is also much challenging.

“Wicket-keeping in pink-ball is challenging because batsmen leave the ball in most of the Test matches,” Saha said.

“Sight screen may be a problem. Usually, there is a black background sight screen. But here we have to see the backdrop, if it’s not clear then it will be challenging for the wicket-keeper. I stand near the slip. When our pacers bowl a delivery, I feel the same challenge as them. We have to play our best according to the situation. We have to move forward.”

On the reverse swing of the pink-ball, Saha said, “There is little chance of a reverse swing in pink-ball. But our bowlers have the ability to swing pink-ball as well.”

It should be mentioned that some four years after the inception of playing the longer version of the game under the lights, India will become the last major cricketing nation to enter into the Day-night Test era. They are all set to appear in the pink-ball party for the first time in their history against Bangladesh.
