Pink Ball Test: Abir Chatterjee, Mimi, Birsa Dasgupta And Others Cheers Indian Team As Eden Gardens Head For Historic Moment
India will play its first pink-ball, day-night Test match against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens on Friday. The city is brimming with everything that's pink -light, decoration to mark the historic day for both the teams. India's captain Virat Kohli has also expressed his excitement to play in the team’s first-ever day-night Test.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) gave a sneak peak of the preparations that have been made for the Test match at the Eden Gardens stadium.

And our celebrities are also joining the race and wishing the Indian team for the match. They are sharing on their social media handle and tweeting.








Business Standard reported that army paratroopers will fly into the Eden Gardens to hand over a pink ball each to the two captains just before the toss. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly revealed on Tuesday that tickets for the four days of the Eden Gardens Test, which has a capacity of over 65,000, have been sold out.

The Kolkata Test will also see the SG pink ball making its debut. So far, Test cricket was being played with the Kookaburra and Dukes balls. In India, the SG Test ball is used to play Test cricket. For this match, BCCI asked its supplier of Test match balls, Sanspareil Greenlands (SG), a Meerut-based sports manufacturer, to deliver 72 pink balls.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) had approved Day/Night Tests in 2012 and the first Day/Night Test was played in 2015 between Australia and New Zealand at Adelaide. Sri Lanka is the second in the list with two wins out of three. England, South Africa and New Zealand have won one Test each.
