Pink-ball cricket will mark its debut in Sri Lanka when the first unofficial Test between Sri Lanka A and West Indies A commences at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo today.

SLC Vice President K Mathivanan said that they should not lag behind other countries in experimenting with the pink ball, and a start has to be made.

Sri Lanka currently uses the Australian Kookaburra ball in their domestic tournaments.

SLC is also likely to use the pink ball in their forthcoming domestic competition.
