After witnessing the highest ODI score, an all-time great Test knock and a mind-boggling 2016 T20 World Cup Final, Eden Gardens is all set to become an evidence of the first-ever day-night played by India and Bangladesh. Both sides will be the ninth and the tenth team to hold the new ball in International cricket and will leave no stones unturned to get the desired result. Virat Kohli and Co, who clinched the first match by an innings and 130 runs will step in as the firm favourites and the Bangla Tigers will require an extraordinary effort in order to make a difference. India Vs Bangladesh, Cricket Score 2nd Test Match.
Mohammed Shami is enjoying the form of his life and will be the biggest threat to the opposition. The pacer already has a five-fer to his name in a domestic pink-ball clash and can put up a similar performance at Kolkata too. While, Abu Jayed, who claimed four Indian wickets in the opening Test will look to make the ideal use of the new-pink cherry in order to dismantle the potent Indian batting line-up. Indian skipper Virat Kohli bagged a duck in the first clash and the wounded lion will be roaring to put a significant score at Kolkata. India vs Bangladesh, Day-Night Test 2019, Key Players: Virat Kohli, Mohammed Shami, Abu Jayed and Other Cricketers to Watch Out for at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
Dew factor could play a role in the match as Kolkata’s outfield tends to get moist in the evening and will be a worrying sign for the bowling side. The role of spinners will be also an interesting thing to see as the pink cherry is not known to assist the slow bowlers. So, the star duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja will have a job in hand.
At the moment, the hosts are in red-hot form in the longest format of the game and hence will start the historic clash as favourites. However, with the day-night Test being a different ball game altogether, the visitors will fancy their chances of causing an upset and squaring up the series 1-1.
