Pink-ball Test will mark a new beginning: Sourav Ganguly, BCCI president

  • India, Bangladesh to make their day-night Test debut today at Eden Gardens. It took India a new BCCI regime under maverick former captain Sourav Ganguly to take the pink ball plunge, a good seven years after the International Cricket Council approved the format to revive interest in Tests. Ganguly convinced the Bangladesh Cricket Board to agree to a Day/Night Test.

    Remember, pink’s short association with cricket prior to Friday’s match has hardly been serious. The first ODI, played under the Big Top of Kerry Packer’s World Series Cricket – ‘pyajama cricket’ –on November 28, 1978, had Australia in wattle gold (named after the golden wattle plant that signifies unity in Australia, but ‘canary yellow’ to the rest of us) taking on the West Indies in, er, coral pink. Even the likes of Andy Roberts, Joel Garner, Colin Croft and Viv Richards in salmon couldn’t inspire cricketing, never mind sartorial, confidence.

    Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina rang the Eden Gardens Bell ahead of the toss here on Friday but it was the famously enthusiastic Kolkata fans, who gave the match its character. After being reluctant for four years, India finally embraced the Day/Night format for Test cricket, following a strong push from Ganguly and Kolkata proved to be the perfect host.

    The dark side of Indian men’s cricket is susceptible to mental health issues and a host of reasons still prevents any talk about them. But with a vast number of boys playing cricket under intense competition, it is imperative a system is put in place to encourage open discussion on such issues.

    Kohli (928 rating points), who hit 136 against Bangladesh in the second Test in Kolkata, reduced the gap from 25 to three points with Australian Smith (931) to retain the second spot. Agarwal, who struck a double century in the first Test against Bangladesh in Indore, jumped one place to 10th with 700 points. He is the fourth Indian batsmen in the top 10 list.

    42% Indian sports fans may even choose to miss their honeymoon for a big event.
