India's opener Rohit Sharma, who is preparing to play only his second pink ball test, spoke to the media. On Sunday, he said that the Indian batsmen will need to take special care during the match.

The Indian team will play in the third match of the four-match series against England from 24 February. This match is going to be very special, this will be the second time after Kolkata when the Indian team will play in the Pink Ball Test at home. 

This will be the first time between India and England when a Day Night Test match will be played. This match is very important for India as India have to beat the England team by a margin of two matches to reach the final of the Test Championship. By winning this match, India can keep their hopes of the finals alive. 

India's opener Rohit Sharma, who is preparing to play only his second pink ball test, spoke to the media. On Sunday, he said that the Indian batsmen will need to take special care during the match. Rohit said, batting at sunset will show extra vigilance and concentration.

Rohit, who played an aggressive innings of 161 runs in the second Test in Chennai, played in the first day-night Test in India against Bangladesh in November 2019 but did not have to bat at sunset.

Rohit said in the online press conference, 'I have heard from my teammates so far that it stays in the mind. I did not get a chance to bat against Bangladesh at sunset when the sun is coming up. Of course it is a bit challenging, the weather and lights suddenly change. You have to be extra alert and focused, you have to talk to yourself. All batsmen are aware of this type of challenge. We just need to keep this situation in mind and play accordingly.
