Before she can think of the pink ball, however, her immediate focus is on tackling the Dukes ball in England

Smriti Mandhana has admitted that playing a day-night Test had been inconceivable to her until the announcement of India Women’s first-ever pink-ball Test, against Australia later this year.

“Frankly, when I used to watch day-night Tests of men, I actually never felt that I will be able to experience this moment – it’s wrong to say ‘I’ at the moment – that the Indian team will be able to experience the moment,” Mandhana told ESPNcricinfo. “So, when it got declared, I was like, ‘Oh, wow. That’s going to be crazy.'”
