CoA puts pink-ball Test plans on hold for India
The Committee of Administrators (CoA) identically raised the pertinent questions regarding India’s first ever pink-ball Test in their traditional format history. Vinod Rai heads the committee.
The Supreme Court-appointed committee is overseeing the activities of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Arguably, Test cricket has been fascinating for the gentleman’s game. Diminishing of the fans from the stands with the time has affected the traditional format. Subsequently, which went on to force the world cricket body International Cricket Council (ICC) to take the strong measure.
To keep the game afloat, the Dubai-based Board has further introduced the day-night Test cricket.
However, India is yet to play the pink-ball Test as the apex body is rushing to enforce the Board and its state units to implement the Lodha Panel recommendations.

However, the CoA also address earlier that Board must take all the players into the confidence to make it possible.
The reports suggested players had reservations regarding the day-night Test.

The interim secretary for the BCCI, Amitabh Choudhary earlier expressed the unanimous decision will bring the recreation to the country.
As per the administration committee, it has requested the Board the things will be held after the proper planning.
It further addressed that choice has to be there and the finalizing procedure will be lying with the CoA.
With the team and Board differ on choices, in all likelihood the fans in India are supposed to wait for too little – to witness the pink-ball affair on the home soil.
Moreover, India chief coach Ravi Shastri somewhat agreed upon the terms but indicated the CoA is there to dictate the terms.
Citing the main examples, one of the factors was the dew effect. It bothered many in the introduction of the day-night while considering the timing period of the tipped Test fixture.
