Talking on Sports, Tendulkar said that Kohli and co. need to watch out for the clock and keep on changing their procedure relying upon the time.

“Whatever I have seen with the pink-ball Tests, you must be amazingly mindful of the clock.

That is the point at which you don’t simply regard the bowler yet you additionally regard the conditions,” Tendulkar said.

“Here in a pink-ball Test, your first meeting could well be where your money in where you take somewhat more risks and play all the more forcefully. Perhaps in Australia, the sun goes down later than it did in Kolkata. In Kolkata, I felt from 4:30 to 6:30 was a crucial time where the batsmen needed to regard the bowler as well as the surface and fabricate those associations. Also, when the ball gets wet, you can begin playing somewhat more shots,” he added.

“Possibly towards the finish of the second meeting and the start of the last meeting may be where the ball does somewhat additional where you need to keep down your animosity and normal senses and be somewhat more focused.

You’re in an ideal situation proclaiming around then and getting their main 3 hitters. You may be short by 20 runs yet you would have potentially saved 120 runs there,” he closed down.
