Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina

Kolakta, November 22: Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina arrived in Kolkata around 10.30 AM on Friday (November 22) to inaugurate India's maiden Day/Night Test match at the iconic Eden Gardens stadium.

India is taking on Bangladesh in its first-ever pink- ball Test match, seven years after the International Cricket Council (ICC) gave its approval to the format.

Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly received Hasina at the airport.

Several former leading cricketers, including Sachin Tendulkar, have arrived in the city to witness the historic match, which will kick off with Army paratroopers flying into the Eden Gardens to hand over a pink ball each to the two captains, just before the toss.
