The ones with the weirdest techniques have been so successful. Chanderpaul, Smith, Marnus now.. look at Fawad Alam.

Back on the topic.. a day night test in India means I can finally watch. 4 am start here and it will finally be amazing to watch the match.

I am sure Anderson will be back. Is Stokes not 100% fit? He hasnt looked threatening.

As said earlier what would worry both teams is the dew factor. The dew would make it difficult both for pacers and spinners to bowl. The best time for the pacers to bowl would be around 4-6pm in the evening, so the batsman better try and save their wickets in this passage of the match. Anderson and Broad should play together. They can really move the ball in this period. Although, England's batsmen would equally be troubled by Ishant's discipline.

For Pink ball Test, I believe this can be the best combination

Rohit
Gill
Pujara
Kohli
Rahane
Pant
Ashwin
Axar
Ishant
Umesh/ Siraj
Bumrah

My personal preference would be Umesh considering he has performed so well in the past playing at home.

Maybe we might even go for Siraj ahead of Axar and Umesh retains his place?

If I know Kohli well enough, Pandya might play tomorrow.
Kohli will say, its a pink ball test so someone like Pandya who can bat as well as bowl fast gives us better balance and moreover it is is home ground.

I'm pretty sure, that Kung-fu Panda will play in place of Kuldeep tomorrow. Umesh is not 100% fit. Pandya is only selected for this day-night test. :D

Pandya would be a Mitch Marsh under Smith's captaincy if he does end up playing. Hope he bats well at least.

I guess it makes some sense to play Pandya in a day-night test just to get some Test match experience in before an England tour in the summer, where India needs Pandya as fourth seamer. Only problem is India will effectively have a four man attack, suspect Pandya won't bowl more than a couple of overs to slowly test his body while bowling.

Goood morning/afternoon. Looking forward to some pink ball/twilight high jinks. Don't care which team tbh, would love to see a team wiped out by some quality pace bowling. :lol
