While speaking about the pink ball Ashwin said that its a challenge to play with the same as it has a lacquer, "Obviously, it's a challenge to play with the pink ball. The ball has a lot more lacquer. I haven't even bowled a single ball with the pink ball. Obviously I just saw it. Sometimes I don't understand if its orange or pink, still coming to terms with that," Ashwin had said on Thursday after the end of 1st day's play against Bangladesh in the 1st Test.
