Pink ball not known, it may or may not swing: Cheteshwar Pujara

Ahmedabad
The pink ball usually makes a lot of move at Shagoduli (evening time), but Indian batsman Cheteshwar Pujara said on Saturday that it is difficult to predict how much the SG ball will swing in the first Test played in the light of light at Motera Stadium here . India beat England by 317 runs in the second Test on the turning pitch of Chepak to take 1-1 in the four-match series and all eyes are now on the pitch of the third Test starting here from 24 February.

India does not have much experience playing with the pink ball and has played only two matches. “We are not sure about how much the ball will swing, especially in this test,” Pujara said at the virtual media conference after the first net session. He said, “Initially it may swing a little, but as the match progresses, it may not swing much, but we can’t say anything about the pink ball, it is quite difficult to predict.”

Pujara said that the pitch looks good to him but it can also change as there is still three-four days left for the Test to start. He said, ‘It will be a different kind of match with the red ball. But it is very difficult to say or assess anything before the match starts with the pink ball because sometimes you expect something else and something else happens with the pink ball.

He said, “As a player I will try to keep things very simple and will not worry too much about the pitch.” Pujara said, ‘I have played many Test matches but I don’t have much experience with pink ball. I don’t think experience matters when you’re playing only one match with a pink ball in a Test series. ‘
