President of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) Sourav Ganguly, who is taking over the control of the BCCI for the next 10 months, has invited Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her India counterpart Narendra Modi for the upcoming India Vs Bangladesh cricket Test match, to be held at the Eden Gardens from November 22 to 26.
If all goes as per plan, the Kolkata Test between India and Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens could see the Prime Ministers of the two countries in attendance.
Sources in the know of developments have said that invites have been sent by the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) to both the Prime Ministers to grace the historic occasion when Bangladesh play their first Test at the historic ground in the City of Joy. A confirmation is expected to come in soon.
The association is known to take cricket celebration to the next level and even while hosting the India-Pakistan encounter in the 2016 World T20, it was Amitabh Bachchan who was invited to be a part of the monumental occasion as also sing the Indian national anthem. In fact, former Pakistan captain and current Prime Minister Imran Khan was also in attendance for the game.
And now with the then CAB President Sourav Ganguly taking over the control of the BCCI — for the next 10 months — there could be more surprises in store for the cricket crazy people of the city.
