Supporting the pacers and their swing more than the spinners such as the likes of Ravichandran Ashwin and Jack Leach, the pink ball is exiting cricket enthusiast all over the world are excited to see what world-class pacers such as Jimmy Anderson and Jasprit Bumrah can do on a new pitch.

What is a pink cricket ball?

The pink ball for cricket was created during the 2000’s so test and first-class games can be played at night too. The traditional red ball for test cricket cannot be used at night because it cannot be seen and camouflages with the pitch with the floodlights on. And the white ball could not be used because it wears away quickly and thus is not suited for test matches.

Even though it is better to see the white ball and has more dye than the red ball it is the best of both worlds making it perfect for day-night test games such as the 3rd India vs England test.

In further news, Ishant Sharma is going to be only the second-ever Indian bowler to play 100 test games for the men in blue. The 32-year-old winner of the Arjuna Award has been playing as early as May 2007 making his debut against Bangladesh and since beaten his injuries to claim 300 test wickets too.
