In Kolkata’s Eden Gardens test, Bangladesh opted to bat first after winning the toss. New feathers are being added to the crown of this historically famous stadium. Not only Eden, but it is the golden day for Bangladesh and Bangladesh cricket history also.

Both Bangladesh and India will debut in the pink ball in white dress, just like before 19 years ago when Sourav Ganguly, Naimur Rahman Durjoy were bracketed in the golden leaf in the pages of history. Today, Mominul Haque and Virat Kohli are taking the place of history. Kolkata has been dressed in pink to give hospitality for the day-night test.

However, the renowned vocalist of the subcontinent Runa Laila will sing in the historic cricket test match. She will play the song on the occasion before the match to keep the match memorable. Sourav requested her to sing at the event over the phone.

Runa Laila said that she would just sing “Sadher Lau”, ''Bondhu Tin Din Tor Barite Gelam", “Dama Dam Mast Qalandar” including many songs.

Runa Laila arrived in Kolkata on Thursday night to attend the inauguration of the Eden day-night test. She calls this city of India a 'second home' and to her, Kolkata means something special.
