Bangladesh skipper Mominul Haque had no hesitation in opting to bat first after winning his second toss in a row at Eden Gardens, Kolkata on Friday. Unlike the last test match, Indian skipper Virat Kohli also said that he wanted to bat first.
India has fielded an unchanged XI for the Kolkata test while Bangladesh has made two changes with Al Amin coming in place of Taijul and Nayeem Hasanin for Mehidy Hasan.
The test match is not only India's but also Bangladesh's first-ever day and night test match and experience with the pink ball.
To commemorate the occasion, BCCI has invited the playing members of Bangladesh's first-ever Test squad from 2000. Incidentally, BCCI chairman Sourav Ganguly was the skipper of the Indian side and the match was also played at Kolkata.
Bangladesh President Sheikh Hasina, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee were some of the dignitaries present on this historic occasion.
