The MCC are going to test pink balls instead of the white ones in school, university, and 2nd XI county matches to see if its feasible for them to be used in county cricket and later on in ODI cricket.
The idea behind this is that the pink ball will be easier to pick for the batsman out of the bowler's hand than the white ball. In addition, the colour coating on the pink ball will not wear off as it does on the white one.
Isn't the game already so much in favour of the batsmen? With the pink ball easier to pick out of the hand, it will make the batsmens' life even easier thus tilting, the already tilted balance, more the batsmens' way. Is it necessary?
