He is ready to play only in his second test with a pink ball, opening for India Rohit Sharma on Sunday he said he would be “extremely cautious and focused” as he fought during the twilight of the day-night match against England here.
Rohit, who won the dazzling 161 in the second test in Chennai, took part in the first day test in India against Bangladesh in November 2019, but did not hit during the twilight phase.
“So far, I’ve only heard from teammates that this plays into my mind. I only played one pink ball against Bangladesh, but I couldn’t fight at that time (dusk), when the sun was about to set,” he said in a virtual press conference before the third test against England starting here on Wednesday.
“Obviously it’s a bit challenging, the weather and the light suddenly change. You have to be extremely careful and focused, you have to talk to yourself. All bullies are aware of these challenges. We just have to be careful about the situation and play accordingly.”
The series of four tests between India and England is currently 1-1.
