Eden Gardens, Kolkata Stadium, Chattogram, Pitch Report: Batting And Bowling India vs Sri Lanka, 2nd ODI Preview (1/12/23): IND vs SL, 2nd ODI, Sri Lanka tour of India, 2023 – Live Cricket Score

The Eden Gardens is still cricket’s answer to the Coliseum, along with the MCG. It was the first time a Test was played there, in 1934, when India was just starting to play cricket. Douglas Jardine’s team won in four days. Since then, it has become a place of pilgrimage for the majority of international cricketers, providing them with the opportunity to demonstrate their skills in front of the most vocal and passionate fans in the game.

However, there have been instances when the enthusiasm has gone overboard, such as when riots disrupted matches against Australia (1969–70) and the West Indies (1966–67) and when a shameful display of arrogance caused the World Cup semi-final against Sri Lanka (1996) to be postponed with the visitors on the verge of victory. The Sri Lanka Tour of India began with a three-match One-Day International series in which India defeated Sri Lanka 2-1. Now, the three-match One-Day International series that will begin on January 10 will see both teams face off once more.
