Ganguly took to Twitter on Thursday to write: “Well @bcci and @cab … look forward to 5 days @JayShah.” The day-night Test against Bangladesh will be played with a pink ball.

Earlier in the day, Indian skipper Virat Kohli also expressed his excitement over the pink-ball Test and called it a ‘big occasion’.

“It’s a big occasion. We were excited about the pink-ball Test. Such big buzz for a match at Eden was created when we played against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup in 2016,” said Kohli in the pre-match press conference.

“In that match also, big players came to see it and in this day-night match also felicitation and all is planned. A big crowd will give a boost to all players. People will enjoy the spectacle. We are lucky that we will be playing India’s first-ever day-night Test,” he added.
