It seems like the serving Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president is already looking forward to making memories as the former Indian skipper teased a special video for the historic meeting of India and Bangladesh in the ongoing Test series on Friday. With the Day 1 of the 2nd Test proceedings almost upon every Indian cricket fan, BCCI chief Ganguly shared the small transition of the City of Joy turning into pink on the eve of the 2nd Test match last night.

In a video posted on Twitter, Ganguly wrote: “Well BCCI and Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB)… look forward to 5 days @JayShah.” The former Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president had taken the matter in his own hands after he managed to convince Virat Kohli and the Bangladesh team to create history by playing their first-ever Test under floodlights.

“The pitch looks good. I am very excited. When have you last seen a Test match where first four days’ tickets have been sold out,” he had said when he announced that the Kolkata will be a full house for the 2nd and final Test meeting between the two sides. “Sachin (Tendulkar), (Sunil) Gavaskar, Kapil (Dev), Rahul (Dravid), Anil (Kumble) everyone will be there. In tea time, there will be carts going around the stadium with former captains in them,” Ganguly added.
