Sourav Ganguly confirmed that players from the first-ever Test played between India and Bangladesh in November 2000 will be present at the Eden Gardens Stadium on Saturday, as India prepare to host its first-ever Day/Night Test.
Shami wrecked the Bangladesh batting lineup taking seven wickets in the Indore Test. The 29-year-old has the best strike rate in the world in the last two years and rose to his career-best rankings ahead of the historic Test.
Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will attend the second Test match between India and Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens. Sourav Ganguly also said that he will personally invite Prime Minister Narendra Modi to watch the proceedings.
The Eden Gardens is preparing to host the first Day/Night Test on Indian soil from Friday, when Bangladesh will take on India in the 2nd Test of the ongoing series. On Wednesday, the India players were seen putting in hard shifts as evening fell and the floodlights came on.
