England vs India 3rd Test: Cheteshwar Pujara gave a big statement, The third Test match of the 4-Test series between the Indian cricket team and England cricket team is going to be Day-Night. And pink ball is to be used in this test.
Prior to this Test match, India’s experienced batsman Cheteshwar Pujara said on Saturday that Pink Ball will swing a lot more in the Test before being played under the light in Motera Stadium.
It is going to be much more difficult to predict. The Indian cricket team defeated the England team by a big margin of 317 runs in the second Test match on the turning pitch of Chepauk to level the series 1-1.
All eyes are now on the pitch of the third Test match to be held from February 24. Indian cricket team has no experience of playing cricket more than Pink Ball.
The Indian team has played only two matches so far. Cheteshwar Pujara said at the virtual media conference after the net session, especially in this test match, Pink Ball swings.
We are not sure about it. He further said that initially it can swing a little. But as the match progresses, it may not swing much.
But we cannot say anything about Pink Ball, it becomes quite difficult to predict.
India’s veteran Cheteshwar Pujara said that he felt the pitch fine. But this can change later as there is still 3 to 4 days left to start Test cricket.
According to him, this match is going to be very different from Red Ball. But it cannot be right to judge anything with Pink Ball.
Eagerly waiting to step out and play at the impressive Motera!

Because sometimes you expect another situation but anything can happen with this Pink Ball. Pujara said, as a player, I will try my best to keep things very simple.
I will not worry much about the pitch because I have played many matches. However, we have played only two matches against Pink Ball. But I do not think that when you are playing only one match with pink balls in a series.
In this, experience matters. England vs India 3rd Test have seen a some changes. In which the veteran fast bowler Umesh Yadav of India has been replaced. After his fitness test, he may get a chance to play in the team.
