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.

Mumbai, 23 Oct (live24india) : Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly on Wednesday was formally elected as the President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). “It’s official – Sourav Ganguly formally elected as the President of BCCI,” the BCCI tweeted.

The appointment of Ganguly, who has donned many hats, including presiding over the administration of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) became the only contender for the top job that was finalised last week. Alongwith Ganguly, Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah was made the secretary. Kerala’s Jayesh George was appointed as BCCI Joint Secretary, while Mahim Verma of Uttarakhand became the new vice-president.

Former BCCI President Anurag Thakur’s younger brother Arun Dhumal became the treasurer. The appointment of the new BCCI team brings an end to the 33-month reign of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) who were tasked for running the administration of world’s richest cricket body.

Ganguly’s appointment will, however, be a short one as he will have to go in for a cooling off period from September 2020, under the new rules. The 47-year-old has already stated that taking care of first-class cricketers and setting the house in order will be among his top priorities during the next few months he will serve as the BCCI chief.
