Pink ball has both plus and minus

The pink ball test which happened yesterday had a mix bag of replies. The players playing with it has told its fine but the Spectators and those outside the field are not able to spot the ball from the distance.

Both, Michael di Venuto and Kyle Coetzer found it easy to play with the Pink ball and both went on to score hundreds against MCC.

The Pink ball is been tested as a part of making five day test cricket under lights.

The game started on Monday at 2.30 pm local time and the ball became a deep reddish hue by the time the lights came on.

Durham finished on 3 overs, with Michael di Venuto making 131 and Kyle Coetzer 123 not out.
The players wore whites and the sightscreens were also the usual white during the game
