Former captain Dilip Vengsarkar allegeldy hailed former cricketer and BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, saying that the first Pink Ball Test in India is a feather in Ganguly’s cap as he is the man who made it happen.
In a statement, Vengsarkar said, “A cricketing background always helps any administrator to take the right decisions. He has been a very good cricketer, hence, its a right decision as an administrator. The first pink test in India is happening under his leadership which is another feather in his cap.”
India was allegedly apprehensive about playing a pink ball Test and even last year India refused to play against Australia. But the newly-appointed BCCI President, Ganguly emphasized on the issue. Also, he said Captain Virat Kohli took only three seconds to agree to it.
