The BBC's Alison Mitchell was at the first day-night first-class match in England, between Kent and Glamorgan in Canterbury, and got the reactions of players, coaches and fans on the experiment with the pink ball.

As it turned out, the stitching on the ball split early on in the match and the players just had to get on with it; far from ideal in a First Class match, albeit one which has no bearing on Division Two promotion. The performance of the ball got mixed reactions.
