Within 3 seconds Virat Kohli gave his consent to day night match says Sourav Ganguly
India's first pink ball test will be on display at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on November 22. Sourav Ganguly's first meeting with India captain Virat Kohli, after the BCCI's presidency, made it clear that the history of day and night test would be written in India.
Sourav attended a promotional event in Kolkata on Sunday. He informed that within just three seconds, Kohli had agreed to a day-night test. Saurav says, "I don't know why India didn't want to play day-night Test in Adelaide in the past! I talked to Virat for about an hour. I told him we had to play day and night tests. And he agreed within three seconds. He says yes, let's go ahead, let's do this. Honestly I don't know why this has not happened in the past. Who or what was associated with it. But i saw Kohli and how keen he was to play."
When India visited Australia last winter, BCCI did not agree to play a day-night test at the Adelaide Oval. The venue has had its last three seasons in the pink ball test. The Indian board had almost asked Cricket Australia to play day test match. According to ICC rules, the day-night test is possible only if the visiting country is approved.
