The ODI between India and Sri Lanka tomorrow will be the first match Eden Gardens in Kolkata has hosted in over five years. On September 21, 2017, Australia was defeated by Virat Kohli’s team by a score of 50 runs. Snehasish Ganguly, president of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), is confident that the stadium will be filled because an ODI hasn’t occurred in such a long time.
Talking about the weather for tomorrow’s game – There will be some fog and a chill in the air. Therefore, everyone will be watching to see how the 22-yard strip performs. There wouldn’t be any complaints about the pitch, according to curator Sujan Mukherjee. “There will definitely be pace and bounce on the pitch. I will cut a few centimetres of grass on the day of the match so that spinners also find some turns. There will be something for all bowlers,” Mukherjee remarked. More runs and more dew at a venue that’s been kinder to batters. A sunny day and a hazy evening with temperatures in the early 20s is on the cards.
Fans can expect a sunny start for the second ODI and as per the forecast the windy conditions can take over during the second innings of the game giving Kolkata a cold evening with an excited crowd.
