India offers Day/night Test to Bangladesh

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is looking at the possibility of playing their first day/night Test during the forthcoming series against Bangladesh at home. Newly elected BCCI president Sourav Ganguly had recently indicated his willingness to see India play day/night Tests and this seems to be a continuation of that desire.

BCCI reportedly made the proposal to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to make the second Test, scheduled to take place in Kolkata, a pink-ball affair. The BCB has not yet made a decision on it and are assessing the development before confirming their stance on the matter.

"They [BCCI] have proposed [Day-Night Test] us and we will let them know after thinking a while. We have received the letter two or three days and we will take a decision in this regard but we have not discussed about it. We will let them know about our decision within one or two days,” BCB’s cricket operations chairman Akram Khan said.
