‘Enthused’ Warne wants pink ball to be made permanent

Melbourne: Australian spin great Shane Warne has backed the idea of using pink ball and suggested that the red ball should be permanently replaced with the new ball, even though the experiment is only one day old.

Australia and New Zealand were observed playing with the pink ball in the opening day of the historic day and night Test at the Adelaide Oval.

Considering the use of pink ball as `huge success`, the 46-year-old said the ball stood up extremely well as it was easily seen by both commentators as well as the crowd, News.com.au reported.

New Zealand all-rounder Mitchell Santner also hailed the concept, revealing that everyone was quite happy with the way it went.

Echoing similar view, swing specialist Trent Boult said that the ball stands out like a sore thumb. (ANI)
