Eden Gardens frontrunner to host historic day-night Test
10 June 2016 Current Affairs: The iconic Eden Gardens has emerged as the frontrunner to host the first ever Day-Night Test match in the country against the visiting New Zealand side even though CAB president Sourav Ganguly said it will depend on their upcoming "pink ball experiment" from June 18. 

Nothing has been confirmed yet. Hosting a day night Test will depend on the success of the Duleep Trophy. We are also organising the country's first day night four-day CAB Super League final with pink Kookaburra balls from June 18-21 on an experimental basis. We will see how it goes,Ganguly told PTI, keeping cards close to his chest. 

An influential BCCI official, though, told PTI that if the Day/Night Test match is held against New Zealand, it will come to Eden Gardens in all likelihood. 

Eden's chances are bright since the other two Test venues for the New Zealand leg are Indore and Kanpur. Kanpur's floodlights have been a problem while Indore, for a match of this magnitude, may not be the best venue. The CAB has procured a dozen pink kookaburra balls for the super league final next week which will be telecast live. 

At CAB are committed to try our level best to provide best of facilities and meaningful games for the spectators to witness.
