Kolkata is gearing up to host the first ever pink ball day-night Test match at the Eden Gardens.
The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) has joined hands with Creocraft to give life to the Eden’s walls, which will tell the story of a cricketer and his journey from the maidan to the national side.
Over 20 artists studying at the Indian Art College are working day and night to paint this idea on the walls of the iconic stadium.
Mascots of the Test, Pinku and Tinku, were unveiled in the presence of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly on Sunday. These are expected to attract kids towards the Test.
A giant pink balloon of size of approximately 14’x14’ will float in the sky till the end of the match.
Several parts of the city around the stadium have been decorated with pink lights while some landmarks will be lit up in pink lights in the run-up to the match.
A dozen billboards, six LED boards and branded buses will also be seen around the city from Monday onwards to increase awareness about the Test.
