India to play 1st ever Day-Night Test at Eden Gardens
KOLKATA: The Indian cricket team will play its first-ever Day-Night Test match against Bangladesh, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly said on Tuesday, ending days of speculation surrounding the game.
The Test is scheduled to be held at the Eden Gardens from November 22-26 and will be the second game of a two-match series.
The development ended days of speculation after Ganguly first proposed the idea to the Bangladesh Cricket Board, which faced resistance from its players and sat for multiple meetings to convince them.
"It's a good development. Test cricket needs this push. My team and I were bent on it and thanks to Virat (Kohli) also, he agreed," Ganguly said.
