After experimenting with the Australian-made Kookaburra pink balls in the domestic Duleep Trophy, the BCCI decided that they would use the variant produced by equipment manufacturer Sanspareils Greenlands, commonly known as SG based out of Meerut, for India's maiden international foray into day-night Test cricket.SG's marketing director, Paras Anand confessed that come November 22 when India and Bangladesh meet at the Eden Gardens, he will be the most nervous person inside the stadium. Speaking about the hype created around the pink ball, Anand stressed that five elements will be essential for the success of the match."I believe five elements are critical for the success of pink-ball cricket -- pitch, outfield, lights, players' experience and the ball itself," Anand told Reuters by telephone.Close Also Read | IND vs BAN pink ball Test: All you need to know about the day-night game at Eden Gardens related news Sri Lankan legend Lasith Malinga wants to continue playing … [Read more...] about India vs Bangladesh Day/Night Test: India’s pink-ball supplier endures nervous wait at Eden Gardens

Bangladesh's spin bowling consultant Daniel Vettori conceded that early sunset in Kolkata could pose a massive challenge for his team's batsmen during the "twilight" hours of the upcoming historic Day/Night Test against India starting on November 22. While a handful of first team players from India have played pink-ball game in domestic cricket, Bangladesh's only experience with the pink ball was a one-off Day/Night four-day match in 2013 but none of the current team players were part of that fixture."I think the pink ball is relatively normal in the day, the challenge will be how much of the Test is played under lights.
