3D Mapping on Tata Centre to mark Pink Ball Test
21st November 2019
The Tata Centre is one of the landmark buildings of the city. However, come the evening of November 20 and it turns into a tribute to Test Cricket in India highlighting the historic Pink Ball D/N Test commencing from Nov 22.
The test match that is to be played between India and Bangladesh may well prove to be a watershed moment for Indian Cricket as it changes Test cricket from a 5 day affair to a Day-Night contest fought with a pink ball.
The ball itself is a thing of beauty that measures around 156 gms and has two raised seams alongside the liplock stitch giving it better grip and making its movement more pronounced.
In order to raise the awareness about the Test, a first 3D mapping is being done on Tata Centre covering an area of 3500 sqft that will relate various tales of Test cricket with visuals that include the building being filled with cricket balls, visual of the stadium, of wickets being knocked and images of Indian greats.
The mapping will be done from three levels of 25, 40 and 50 feet with some extentions reaching upto 65 feet. This is the first 3D mapping of a building in the City. The mapping will have 4 sequences of one minute each.
Various other landmarks like Big Ben on Laketown, The 42, Elliot Park and Sahid Minar are all getting lighted up for the occasion.
