India vs Bangladesh D/N Test: A massive pink balloon, mascots, murals and special gold coins unveiled to mark the historic occasion

Posted On / /

The Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Friday will play host to historic Day-Night Test match between India and Bangladesh.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday gave a sneak peek of the preparations that have been made for India’s first Day-Night Test. The BCCI posted a 17-second clip on its social media platforms in which the Eden Gardens can be seen lit up in the pink colour, inside and out.

The match will be played from 1:00 pm to 8:00 pm IST, in a bid to avoid the worst of the dew that hits the region in winter months. According to reports, the tickets or the first three days have already been sold out at the iconic Eden Gardens.

Here’s a look at how the Eden Gardens has been brought to readiness ahead of the historic occasion:
