Team India is set to play its first ever day-night test on November 22nd. The Virat Kohli-led side will be facing Bangladesh in this historic test match. Eden Gardens, Kolkata, will be hosting the match.

This is the first time team India is playing a Pink Ball test match and the buzz around this game is pretty high.

The squad is presently in Kolkata, practising for the much-anticipated game. Multiple practice sessions were held recently.

It is said that Eden Gardens has the right pitch and outfield to host a day-night test, thanks to the high-quality black soil that has a lush spread of green grass.

Team India is well ahead of its competitors in the ICC test championship. However, the subcontinent nation is playing its first ever day-night test and it can turn out to be a cracking contest in the end. The likes of Australia and England have already played day-night tests and they have a clear understanding of the conditions.
