After The success of the pink ball Test between Australia and New Zealand in Adelaide last November, Indian Cricket board BCCI is looking to organise pink ball test against Black Caps. BCCI President Anurag Thakur already announced that he Duleep Trophy 2016-17 Season would be played under lights and with the pink ball. Now, Sanspareils Greenlands (SG) has started manufacturing pink ball for the day-night match.

There is no rocket science to produce pink ball. But, it has new technology. “There is no rocket science behind the making of pink ball. It’s not that you are trying to make a completely different product or there is new technology involved or there is a patent. It’s the same process , marginally different from the red ball, yes, but the same as the white ball.” he said.
