Kolkata, 29 Oct : Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Tuesday agreed to play the second Test against India at Eden Gardens under lights and this will be the first Day-Night Test for both teams.

“Great opportunity and massive game in Eden Gardens against India, who also hasn’t played a D/N Test. It is new to both sides and it will probably bring the two teams together,” Bangladesh coach Russell Domingo said.

“Both teams not quite knowing what is going to happen, so it is a challenge we want to take. Some of our players were skeptical about it, but we are excited. We don’t know what brand of ball will be used, and we will probably have little time to prepare but we are excited by it.”

BCCI president Sourav Ganguly is the man behind making this happen as he pushed the BCB to play under floodlights in a bid to pull crowds to the stadiums.

#VizagTest : Rohit steals show with maiden century as opener

Published

on

Visakhapatnam, 02 Oct : The class has been stamped in the maiden appearance itself and it will now be all about building from here on as Rohit Sharma drove, cut and flicked his way to his maiden hundred as an opener in the second session of the first Test between India and South Africa at the ACA-VDCA Stadium on Wednesday.

Starting the session at 91/0, the Indian openers put on 111 runs in the post-lunch session when umpires called for an early break owing to bad light. While Rohit was batting on 115, Mayank Agarwal was unbeaten on 84 as the South Africa bowlers had no answer to the quality batting on display.

The second session was once again dominated by the Indians, but primarily by India’s new opener — Rohit. Rising to the challenge handed to him by the team management, Rohit stole the show as his cautious approach was overtaken by the free flowing batsmen one is used to seeing in the limited-overs format in the second session.

Brief Scores: India: 202/0 (Rohit 115, Mayank 84) vs South Africa
