Day-Night Test Matches Should be Occasional, Said Bangladesh’s Coach

Even though the first day-night Test between India and Bangladesh is getting quite good, but guest team coach Russell Domingo said on Friday that the pink ball should never replace the red ball. The coach said that Friday was a very bad day for us. We should never play this kind of game.

Bangladesh team head coach Russell Domingo has said, "I think the game that starts at 10 in the morning still makes everyone excited. The game that started at one o'clock doesn't have the same enthusiasm. Generally But right now I should have gone to sleep. This is something that you can do only occasionally. It is fantastic, but rarely a day-night test should be held. "

Earlier, Indian captain Virat Kohli has also made similar arguments. Captain Kohli had said in these words that the Pink Ball Test i.e. Day-Night Test should be occasional. Coach Russell Domingo has also said that the day-night test was planned in a very short period of time, which did not give his team a chance to practice. Sourav Ganguly, who became the new chairman of BCCI, took permission from Bangladesh Cricket Board for the day-night test.

Russell Domingo has said, "We had four days to practice, but a little more time should be given to play with the pink ball. That's the ideal thing, it's no excuse." In this match, Bangladesh's captain Mominul Haq won the toss and elected to bat first and the team collapsed for 106 runs. Indian team pacer Ishant Sharma took five wickets. This is the reason that the Bangla Tigers got upset in the first innings.
