Another first for Eden as the teams gear up for the pink ball challenge

India has no need to make any change to the line-up which won the first Test in Indore a few days ago.

Kuldeep Yadav was in talks for playing this match, but it is unlikely that he will feature, given that India has been performing well with Ashwin and Jadeja. Captain Virat Kohli doesn't have any issue picking up his combination for the pink-ball Test.

Young batsman, Saif Hassan of Bangladesh, has been ruled out of the second Test.

He was likely to feature in this match ahead of Imrul Kayes, who will now get another opportunity. Bangladesh could bring in Mustafizur Rahman and Al-Amin Hossain to increase their pace attack. Mohammad Mithun could be dropped along with Ebadat Hossain. Other than this, Bangladesh will not make any changes.

Some uncertainties are going into this historic Test.

The most important one is how the ball will behave under lights and will dew have any effect. With all these questions, Eden Gardens is ready to host this historic Test. Rain will not be a problem during this match, while the pitch is likely to be bowling friendly.
