Pink ball. Test Cricket under the light at Eden Gardens. It would be quite a magnificent sight. No, it's no utopian idea, it might well be happening.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) wants the Second Test between India and Bangladesh to be a day- night affair, that is according to Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).

If the BCB gives the green light, the iconic Eden Gardens will be the first stadium to host a five-day game under the lights. Incidentally, it will also be India's first day-night Test.

"They (BCCI) have proposed (a Day-Night Test) and we will let them know after thinking a while," BCB cricket operation Chairman Akram Khan told reporters on Sunday.

"We have received the letter two or three days (back) and we will take a decision in this regard but we have not discussed it (yet). We will let them know about our decision within one or two days," he said.

Earlier, newly elected president of BCCI Sourav Ganguly had said that he is in favour of day-night Test matches, and that it was one way to get more people to watch the longest format of the game.

We will have to wait for the confirmation from the BCB, but Eden Gardens could be in for history.
