The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly is in haemodynamically stable condition after being tested positive for COVID-19.

Sourav Ganguly was the one who convinced Virat Kohli to play pink ball Test in India. Earlier, the Indian players had reservation about the day-night Test cricket as the ball behaved differently under the lights.

However, India were superb against Bangladesh and comfortably won the maiden pink ball Test at home.

Ganguly wants the national team to play a day-night Test match on a regular basis.

“It is the future, especially in test cricket. The simple reason is it brings people back to the game after a day’s work. Because people don’t have time off from their day to day work to watch a five-day test match. I remember, in Kolkata, it was a packed house at the Eden Gardens. You see it in Australia, New Zealand. You see people filling up the stands. Hopefully, the next pink ball test match in India will fill up the stands too,” he told News18.

When Ganguly was asked about making pink ball cricket a regular affair, he said – “Yes, of course, and I think everyone at BCCI feels the same way.”
