The day-night pink ball Test match, which will be held between India and Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens here from November 22, has been well received by the fans with a huge demand for tickets.
“Thirty per cent of the online saleable tickets for the first three days (5,905 tickets) has been sold out, while over 3,500 tickets for the fourth day of the second Test have been sold,” Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) secretary Avishek Dalmiya said on Wednesday.
The CAB will make the event memorable by felicitating some cancer survivors. “With the help of Global Cancer Trust, around 20 breast cancer survivors will be invited on the first day of the match. They will be greeted by the CAB. Cancer patients will have a chance to play (fun cricket) at the Eden Gardens on the third day,” Dalmiya informed.
Five gold coins, specially designed for the occasion, will be handed over to the VVIPs as memento.
The CAB has decided to upgrade the medical facilities. With assistance from the Woodlands Hospital, two ICU equipped ambulances, critical care assistance, nurses and medicine will be there to handle emergency situations.
Hoardings will be put up around the city and video clips will be played in cinema halls to promote the historic event.
