Come Friday and all eyes will be on the Eden Gardens in Kolkata where India will play its first Pink-Ball Test against Bangladesh, the second Test of the two-Test series.
The tourists were handed an innings and 130-run defeat in the series opener at Indore thanks to a double century from Mayank Agarwal, who received good support from Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara. India are clear favourites for this match and will want to capitalise on the opposition who will be low on confidence coming into this game. Their only positive was Abu Jayed who bowled really well to send back Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.
India have been invincible at home and if they pocket the Kolkata Test, they would have completed a record 12th consecutive Test series win at home.
In the bowling department, Mohammed Shami has been lethal with the new ball and even looks to take a wicket when the ball gets older. Expect a few surprises from the Bengal pacer with the pink ball.
