Bishan Singh Bedi blasts Sourav Ganguly for Ravi Shastri row

The former Indian bowling legend and the important member of the spin quartet, Bishan Singh Bedi who is always in news from past few years do not seem to be fond of the pink ball as he is against this new trend.

Bedi drew few examples to explain why he is against this

“We don’t need this experiment with the pink ball. Why? The last Test at Sydney was a sellout. The Oval Test between England and Pakistan drew a full house. And there was no pink ball there,

“Attract them with good cricket.Don’t have pink ball stuff for the heck of it. I feel we need to market Test cricket professionally. Like the IPL (Indian Premier League). If you can do it with shorter formats of the game then why not with Test cricket? The administrators have to sell Test cricket properly. Organise good contests. Why are the administrators shirking their responsibility towards preserving history and tradition,” Bedi said.

He also said that it was a bad idea to scrap the zonal system in Duleep trophy “What allegiance would a player have to Blue, Green, and Red, instead of the zonal concept of the past. To me, their level of commitment was missing. I could make out their lack of enthusiasm. It is not just about the pink ball. We have to take other aspects of the game also into account. Please don’t mess around with the game,” he said.

One legend of the game was against the Pink ball whereas the other legend Sourav Ganguly who played a major role in organising the super league final with the pink ball had opposite views to Bedi. He feels that its the need of the hour and it is going to benefit the cricket

“It’s the Need of the hour. Our main aim is to bring in spectators to the venue. This step is in that direction,

“Few are interested in coming to the ground in the morning and spend the day. What is the point of playing in front of nobody? We feel this is the way forward. It is an experiment worth an attempt. Give it some time,” Ganguly said.
