Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly believes that Day-Night Test matches are mandatory for the game until fans started to turn out for the regular Tests.

This statement came after a poor audience throughout India-Sri Lanka Test series and especially in Kolkata’s Eden Gardens. The President of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) needs home day-night Test matches.

“It is inevitable, it has to happen someday. It is very simple, a pink ball will be used instead of the red cherry and people will come and watch in the evening,” said Ganguly.

Meanwhile, he also praised Rohit Sharma for a record third double century in the One-Day International against Sri Lanka in Mohali.

“I feel sorry for the Sri Lankans. Earlier it was (Virender) Sehwag, (Sachin) Tendulkar and now it’s (Virat) Kohli and Rohit Sharma,” he added.

Prince of Kolkata concluded while saying “It was a remarkable innings. He took just 36 balls to convert his century into a double. I was watching the Sri Lankan bowlers and I said Jesus! He just kept sweeping them into the stands. Three double hundreds in one-day cricket.”
