The Cricket Association of Bengal has to cancel a plan of the Army paratroopers to hand over the pink ball to captains before the toss in a day-night test match at the Eden Gardens due to security. According to CAB sources, security clearance could not be obtained before the historic match between India and Bangladesh here. According to the final list of events by the cab, Home Minister Amit Shah will also not be present.
Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will start India's first day-night test by ringing the Eden Gardens. According to ICC rules, the playing conditions can be changed with the consent of the two countries.
During the break, there will be a chat show between Fab Five – Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Anil Kumble, VVS Laxman and BCCI President Saurabh Ganguly. Runa Laila will perform after the match while Jeet Ganguly's event will conclude the opening day.
