Cricket with a touch of pink in Abu Dhabi
The Marylebone Cricket Club's Scott Newman, left, hands the ball to Steve Kirby during the English County Championship cricket match against Durham at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, yesterday. The four-day cricket match that began yesterday is using pink balls as part of a bid by the International Cricket Council and officials governing the laws of cricket, to eventually play the five-day test format under lights to arrest its declining popularity.
