Mark Waugh, former Australian cricketer turned commentator, has blamed India for being selfish in not playing pink-ball Test match.
Waugh added that India should be doing everything in their power to preserve Test cricket, especially as they are one of the few nations that manage to draw in big crowds. It was reported that the members of the Indian team were not too keen on playing the pink-ball Test. So its really only Australia, India and England where Test cricket is alive and well. Why is the BCCI unconvinced by the day-night format, and why are Indian Cricket Bosses unsure about the day-night format of the Test cricket?

Earlier this month, Cricket Australia had confirmed that India would not play a day-night Test in Adelaide during their upcoming tour to Australia later this year. "Working alongside my fellow selectors, the coaching staff and players over the past four years has been a privilege, and I'm proud of the achievements of the Australian teams across all formats in this time", he said.
