India, Bangladesh ready for first day-night test with pink ball

Indian and Bangladesh cricketers trained with pink ball at Eden Garden stadium in eastern Kolkata city on Wednesday (November 20) ahead of their much-awaited day-night Test on November 22.

Bangladesh spin consultant coach Daniel Vettori said playing during the “twilight” hours would be a challenge for both the teams.

Indian cricketers were seen training under floodlights on Wednesday. Wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha said that the seamers were in good form and the colour or type of ball didn’t matter much.

Indian cricket President Sourav Ganguly inspected the pitch and took stock of the ground situation at Eden Gardens.

India and Bangladesh will play their first ever day-night test match on Friday with a pink ball. The administration said that all the tickets were sold for the historic game.
