Virat Kohli and team gave a stunning start to day-night Tests in India as they thrashed the Bangladeshi tigers to register their win at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Team India defeated Bangladesh’s cricket team by an innings and 46 runs.
With the success of this match, Virat Kohli surpassed former skipper MS Dhoni’s record of the most number of successive Test wins. Under MS Dhoni, the Indian cricket team had registered six successive victories in the longest format of the game in 2013, whereas, Virat Kohli led team India registered their seventh consecutive clean sweep in Tests.
As India was playing their first-ever ‘Pink-ball’ tests, there were a lot of questions in everyone’s mind regarding the pink-ball. The pink-ball test has become a talk of the town. However, a journalist asked an interesting question during the post-match presentation.
The journalist asked the question saying that a little girl named ‘Pinky’ asked him why cannot the Tests be played with red-ball at day and white-ball at night. Virat Kohli was all smiles after hearing the question. He came up with a very cute answer for his little fan. He said:
“You won’t be able to see the white ball as we wear Test whites. In the day if you can’t see the pink ball and in the night if you can’t see the white ball, then it will become a one-day Test instead of three days. Even we will get bowled out for 50-60.”
