    Pitch report – Sunil Gavaskar starts by saying that Bangladesh’s batting was very ordinary on Day 1. Feels they got overwhelmed by the occasion and adds that the full house can deter any team. Tells that the ball didn’t swing as much as it did in Indore and it was poor batting. Reckons that it’s still a very good pitch to bat on. Mentions that the batsmen need to be careful early on and then there will be runs on offer. Praises the groundsmen for thinking out of the box as they used jute bags and extra protection to avoid dew setting in during the last session. The Little Master signs off by reiterating that the pitch is full of runs.

    13 wickets, a fifer for a bowler, not one but two concussion substitutes, Bangladesh getting overawed by the situation, Indian openers getting dismissed cheaply for a change, Pujara and Kohli showing their mettle under demanding conditions – Those were the highlights of the first day of the historic Day-Night Test at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. It was truly action-packed and this match has moved at a very brisk pace. Already the home team has got a 68-run lead and with plenty of batting left in the tank, they will aim to build Mount Everest in front of their Asian neighbours. A one-way traffic it has been and we are expecting more of the same today. Can Bangladesh surprise and prove us wrong? Hello and welcome everyone for the coverage and stay with us to find out.

    A tough day’s play for Bangladesh. First the batsmen surrendered with a paltry score of 106. The bowlers tried their best under lights and though there was not a lot of movement or help from the surface, they managed to pick up 3 wickets. Ebadot was expensive but got 2 wickets. Al-Amin was the other bowler to get into the wickets column. It will be another long day for the visitors if they don’t manage to keep picking up wickets.

    A historic day has come to an end and it was another dominant day of play for India. They initially bowled out Bangladesh for just 106 and then they have managed to finish the evening’s play with a lead of 68. The hosts lost the openers relatively early but the duo of Pujara and Kohli added 94 runs. Both got to their respective half tons but Pujara once again failed to convert his start. The Indian skipper and his deputy have added unbeaten 37 runs and would look to add more on Day 2.
