Team India to be Tested at Eden Gardens

The Indore Test is nearer, but Team India is preparing for the Kolkata match; Pujara, who has played with the pink ball, knows what it takes

The first match of the two-Test series between India and Bangladesh will begin on Thursday, 14 November, at the Holkar Stadium here. But more than the first, cricket fans are waiting for the second Test to be played between the two teams! Even Team India is working extra hard for the second match, too. Here’s why.

The second Test between India and Bangladesh will be played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata beginning 22 November. The special thing about this match is the first day-night Test match of Team India, which will be played with the pink ball.

While many players of the team today prepared to play with the pink ball at the National Cricket Academy under the supervision of former captain Rahul Dravid, now even for the Indore Test, players are leaving no stone unturned in the preparation for the day-night Test.

How seriously Indian players are taking the day-night Test in Kolkata can be gauged from the fact that the team has organised a practice session under night lights with the help of the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA). In this regard, Milind Kanmadikar, MPCA secretary, said that the association was very happy to help the players in the preparation of playing with the pink ball. He said, ‘We got a request from Team India that they wanted to participate in the practice session under night lights to prepare for the day-night Test. So we are arranging this for them.”

In a conversation with BCCITV, the vice-captain of the Team India for the Tests Ajinkya Rahane made some revelations about the ‘Pink Test’. He said, “Personally, I am very excited about the day-night Test. I do not know what the result will be, but after some practice sessions, we will get an idea of ​​it. After that, we will know how much the pink ball will swing and how the match will change from session to session. This match will also be very interesting for the fans. I think the more a batsman stays on the crease, the better. There should be no problem in coping with the situation.”

Team India No. 3 Cheteshwar Pujara said that he had had some experience of playing with the pink ball and that he had played with this ball in the Duleep Trophy. Pujara said, ‘It has been a long time since I played with the pink ball in 2016-17. Therefore, it cannot be judged as an advantageous condition. But this experience will definitely help. When you play with the pink ball, you know how to play.”

Pujara said that to play with the pink ball, one needed more practice. “When you start playing with it, you get used to it,” he said.

Pujara, the key link in the middle order of Team India, said, “We need to practise more with the pink ball. Whenever I get a chance, I try to practice with the pink ball.”

Looking at the preparations of Team India for the day-night Test, it is clear that coach Ravi Shastri and captain Virat Kohli do not want to leave anything to chance for this important and historic match. .
