Indian women should practice with pink ball, appeal to BCCI before Australia tour

New Delhi
BCCI Apex Council member Shantha Rangaswamy has written a letter to the BCCI office-bearers demanding a domestic pink ball tournament ahead of the women’s team’s historic day-night Test to be held in Australia from September 30.

Former India captain Rangaswamy said that the lack of domestic season matches due to the Corona epidemic should be compensated for the women cricketers in the same way as it has been done for the men cricketers.

He also said that there should be tours of the India A team if the situation improves. A BCCI official said, “We have got their suggestions. We will see how they can be implemented.’?

Rangaswamy could not be reached, but in the letter, he cited the example of the men’s team, which faced a pink ball problem in Australia. Virat Kohli’s team was reduced to 36 runs in the Adelaide Test, after which they made a spectacular comeback and won the series.

Rangaswamy wrote in the letter, “With the efforts of BCCI, the Indian women’s team played Test cricket recently.” This was the first Test for the India women’s team after seven years. Indian team will play pink ball test in Perth. Rangaswamy said the team needs practice before that.

He said, ‘BCCI has stopped matches for more than 2018 in domestic cricket, so our women’s team has not played with the red ball. The credit goes to the team that it managed to get England to draw. Playing under floodlights in Perth will be challenging. Before that at the domestic level, he needs to practice playing with the pink ball.
