Gautam Gambhir not in favour of 'pink ball' Test matches

News Agencies | Updated on: 15 September 2016, 15:00 IST

Former India opener Gautam Gambhir called himself a 'traditionalist' who loves the red ball and day game for longer format and said any experimentation should be carried out only in T20 cricket.

"I am a traditionalist who loves to play the game in the old way. It is my personal opinion but I think all these changes and experimentation should be carried out in T20 cricket only. The five-day matches and Tests should be played with the red ball. At least that's the way I feel about it," Gambhir said after the Duleep Trophy final.

Despite having a great tournament with 356 runs from five innings at an average of 71.20, Gambhir feels that there are issues with pink ball under lights.

"I completely agree with what (Cheteshwar) Pujara said today during the presentation ceremony. Under lights it is a different game and it is always difficult to pick up the wrist spinners and googly bowlers."
