The troubled New Zealanders came for help to get guided over the rough pitch of the India Sub-continent. For their luck they got the right guy, Saurav Ganguly. The former captain genuinely welcomed the kiwis and gave his wise advice about his home ground, the Eden Gardens. Ganguly demonstrated few drives on his left-handed stance.
He also told the guest about the ball may move in the condition of such pitch, giving them a great idea of play. The pitch of the stadium has already been in the news as the climate condition and lack of spin. Reportedly, the grass on the pitch was trimmed again on this morning as it was not turning favourable for good cricketing performances.
"The ball is likely to move in the first two days and there should be turn from day three. We have got Bermuda grass that makes the wicket harder as the ball travels faster. The best part is it grows quicker and takes away the moisture," Ganguly, who was seen checking the firmness of the pitch with a key, said.
As we see the score today, Dada’s suggestions have really worked out for the kiwis. India faces a 3 wicket fall at 57 runs by the lunch time on day-1 of second test.
