Buzzing for England just cancelling the three pink-ball Tests they've got in the books cos the 17 people at county grounds don't like it.— Dave Tickner (@tickerscricket) June 29, 2017
Andrew Gale, Yorkshire coach"I can’t say I’m a massive fan to be honest."I think if we’re gonna go down that route it’s got to bring more supporters through the gate, and it’s hard to know if it worked or not because of the weather. But on that first day, were there more supporters here than a normal Championship game? I don’t think so."Maybe give it another go next year to see if it works? But if it doesn’t work, put it to bed."Surrey assistant coach Stuart Barnes"We learnt a little bit about bowling with the new pink ball, but that's pretty much it really."We trained three or four times before this game and learnt a little bit about it. It's fairly difficult to look after because you don't get that shine like you do with the red ball. It feels quite soft and light in weight."But it did seam around through our training sessions."It was an interesting experiment to go through."The feedback from the players is that there's a period of time when the light makes it more difficult to view it, which could be a potential problem."The bowlers, they can only compare it with when they're bowling with the red ball. And we like the red ball because we know it."I'm all for experimenting and finding new ways of challenging the players and seeing what they can do."But I haven't seen enough in our training sessions and also our bowlers bowling."I'm all for change if it's for the good of the game. Regarding the pink ball, I'd like to see it a little bit more before I can make a really informed judgement."
