There is a predominance of pink at the Eden Gardens clubhouse in Kolkata these days.
BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) gave a sneak peek of the preparations that have been made for India’s first day-night Test match.
The CAB (Cricket Association of Bengal) is leaving no stones unturned to build up the mood for the historic pink-ball Test, that starts from November 22.
BCCI released a 17-second clip on social media in which the Eden Gardens can be seen lit up in the pink colour, inside and out.
The ‘city of joy’ Kolkata has turned itself into a pink city in the wake of hosting this much-anticipated Test.
A giant pink balloon has been hoisted at the venue and will remain there till the end of the match.
