As on a Thursday, Night match played: Indian Team players consigned the pink ball wing high towards the floodlit M Chinnaswamy stadium. Sanspareils Greenlands (SG) offered a new ball for the tournament. The Pink hue ball manufactured via Sanspareils Greenlands used at M Chinnaswamy stadium during India Vs Sri Lanka Match. 

The arrangement for the initial Day/Night Test series in the stadium, at best the third in India, on Thursday remained in full swing as the native team made an appearance just after Sri Lanka finished their session on the field. 

Before the Test Match: Facts

However, on Wednesday evening, Rahul Dravid and Javagal Srinath came into notice as they entered the stadium. Moreover, watching them enter the stadium gave surface to the memories of 26 years back. It was the year India won the quarterfinals of the World Cup match, which took place against Pakistan in the same stadium, M Chinnaswamy. 

At that time, Dravid’s career remained stagnant. While Srinath reached the peak of his career. Virat Kohli (forefront) practices as Vikram Rathour, Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, and Rahul Dravid meet during their practice session in Bengaluru. 

After a ten and half year gap, Dravid comes back to his home ground in the role of Head Coach. He played his last Test series during October 2010 tournaments against Australia. However, Srinath earned the opportunity to take the place of Referee in this test series. For the first time, we saw the Pink ball in the Test series where Srinath came as Referee and Dravid as a Head Coach.

There are many sports in the world. Some people likes football, and others likes cricket or basketball. But I love to play cricket because it is a game of gentalman. I am a left-handed batsman and a left-arm orthodox bowler. I played an inter-college tournaments. Also, I represented my college cricket team as vice captain. Ms. Dhoni is my idol, and the Chennai Super Kings are my all-time favourite franchise.
