Mumbai: India’s first day-night Test match is one of the most highly anticipated things this season and the excitement level amongst the people is at an all-time high. There are many celebrities that will be coming for the match and several ceremonies and events have also been planned. So, it is natural that the tickets would sell like hotcakes.

Sourav Ganguly said to reporters in Kolkata that the first three days of the day-night Test between India and Bangladesh have totally sold out. He said, “We are happy that it's a sellout for the first three days."

Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) Secretary Avishek Dalmiya, speaking to IANS, said, "All the sellable tickets were already sold out online. We are now left with a limited number of quota tickets. We will only be able to evaluate on November 19 whether they have been taken.”

There are several attractions planned on the occasion of India’s first day-night Test. The Army will play out the National Anthems of both the countries before the start of play. This will be followed by the ringing of the customary Eden Bell by Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee.

Then at the 20-minute tea break, former captains and the galaxy of sports stars from other disciplines will be taken out on carts making a round of the ground along the boundary lines.

During the 40-minute supper break, the CAB has also organised a talk show featuring the 'Fabulous Five' of Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Anil Kumble and VVS Laxman who will walk down the memory lane, delving on the epic 2001 Test win against Australia here.

"This will be shown on the giant screen. It will be clearly audible to the spectators," Avishek said. Following the first day's play, players who played the first Test between India and Bangladesh will be felicitated followed by speeches given by the dignitaries including Sheikh Hasina.

 

Bangladesh deputy high commission and the Kolkata Police will conduct two separate security inspections at the stadium and the team hotel on Saturday.
