India outclassed Bangladesh in the first Test that was played in Indore by an innings and 130 runs. Now, both teams are gearing up for the first-ever Day-Night game scheduled to be played in Kolkata at Eden Gardens. And, the interesting fact about the landmark match is that the balls will be of pink colour. This will be the first occasion to face the Pink ball for the players from both the teams which is why the Bangladesh pacer Al Amin Hossain thinks that it will be cracking encounter.
The game will begin on the 22nd of November in front of a jam-packed crowd. Also, the historic game will be attended by some of the all-time great sportspersons from India. However, it will be a tough challenge for the bowlers and batsmen to play under the lights in the longer format of the game.

Al Amin Hossain, the speedster feels that their team has never played with pink balls. Earlier, they have played with red-balls and white-balls, so it will be a challenge not for his team but for the hosts as well. He also added that the batsmen of both the teams will have a tough time facing those balls while batting. But, it will be a levelled stage for the hosts as well as for them.
“Of course. We never played with pink balls. We played with white balls, we played with red balls. But the pink ball is new to everyone. It is made differently. There will be obstacles for everyone. If the ball gets wet, it will be wet for us and for India too. Their batsmen will have difficulties, so will our batsmen,” the young pacer said as quoted by bdcrictime.
The young 29-year-old pacer from Bangladesh also recited that the team is not thinking about their previous defeat. In Kolkata, their team will come up with improvements in their game and strong team effort.
“It is not wise to think about what has happened in the last match. In Kolkata, there will be a team effort. A historical test. Everyone is looking forward to. India is newcomers with this situation, we are also newcomers with this situation. That will be a challenging match,” he added.
