India will play their first day-night test match against Bangladesh that will start from November 22. This test match is also the Bangladesh first day-night test match. Sourav Ganguly is planning to invite some chief guest during this test after becoming BCCI president where Star Sports are planning that MS Dhoni joins their panel as a guest commentator during the day-night test match. If Star Sports will convince MS Dhoni, then Dhoni will be seen in the commentary box on the opening day of the test match on November 22.
In the plan proposed by Star Sports to BCCI President Sourav Ganguly for the pink ball Test, accessed by IANS, all former captains of the Indian team are to be invited for the first two days of the Test match and will be asked to share their favourite moments from India’s Test history.
“Invite India Test captains for Day 1 & 2 of the Test. All captains at the ground along with (Virat) Kohli and the rest of the team as well as the dignitaries line up for the anthem. Captains appear on commentary as guests through the day to recollect their favourite moments from India’s Test history. Down memory lane segments recorded with individual captains are played on the big screen at the ground in breaks Day 4 onwards,” reads the plan for the former India captains.
“V.V.S. Laxman, Sourav Ganguly, Harbhajan Singh, Anil Kumble (?) and Rahul Dravid (?) re-live the Test match (2001). Segments aired on the big screen,” the plan reads.
“Free entry to watch India practice on Friday (B & L block). Live coverage of the practice session on Star. Crowd interaction with legends. Crowd interactions with select India players (at the end of the session),” reads the mail.
