Inaugural D/N test India vs Bangladesh-Calcutta

Recommended Posts

From cricinfo

So this is what has been planned by Ganguly and the Cricket Association of Bengal:

1. Police band show

2. Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will be introduced to the teams by the respective captains

3. Toss with the ceremonial gold coin at 12.30pm followed by the national anthem.

4. The Eden Bell will be rung by Shiekh Hasina and Mamata Banerjee in presence of BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, BCB President Nazmul Hasan and Sachin Tendulkar.

5. At the supper break at 3pm, there will be a special segment with Indian cricket's Fab Five - Tendulkar, Ganguly, Laxman, Dravid and Kumble - about that Eden Test from 2001, a game for the ages.

6. At the second interval, we'll have a lap of honour with former captains and members of the Bangladesh side, many of whom are in Kolkata, upon Ganguly's invitation to witness the historic moment.

7. We'll end with performances from Runa Laila and a cultural programme by Jeet Ganguly. In between, I'm told there will be some cricket too.:eyedance:

Cricinfo says that there is a good crowd building up. Nice to hear that.

I was at the Eden Gardens on the 3rd day of the historic test match vs Australia. Could hear the crowd chants from outside the stadium. The crowd was loud even when Raju was batting. Hope a similar ambience is recreated in this match.

Kohli at first slip when umesh bowls, and gets replaced by Pujara when Ishant  is bowling :thinking: And Pujara is either at first slip or infield, while Kohli moves between first or third slips.

 

Anyone gets the thought process behind this musical chairs?
