The cricket teams of India and Bangladesh will be face to face in the second and final Test match of the series from today (Friday). The match will be historic as it will be the first time in the country to play a Test match with a pink ball in day-night format. India and Bangladesh teams will also play their first pink ball test match. The first hour and the first session of the game will be very important. Pink ball is believed to be helpful for bowlers and Captain Virat Kohli also confessed it on Thursday. In this context, the importance of the toss will also be very high.
According to captain Kohli, not only will the first hour and the first session of the match is important, but the last session will also be very important. The reason for this is dew. Regarding the role of Dew, he said,” Dew will be playing in the late session. We will see at that time how to deal with it. This is the difference between playing day and night Test in India and other countries. Other than that there is no difference. In this, we will have to make decisions more and more accurately and there will be no scope for any sorrow.”
Many historical memories of Indian cricket are associated with the Eden Gardens of Kolkata. It was on this ground that a World Cup final was played for the first time outside England. In 1999, here was the match of the Asian Test Championship between India and Pakistan. On his return to international cricket after Bain, South Africa played their first match here in 1991, and in 2001 India won a match against Australia on the same ground after follow-on.
A new chapter is going to be added to it from today, as Team India will embark on the Eden Gardens to play the Day-Night test against Bangladesh in their ninth decade after being awarded Test status in 1932.
