It is unlikely that Harbhajan Singh would get an opportunity to play in his 100th Test match here.
The off-spinner, who has the best record by a spinner at Eden with 46 wickets from seven Tests, skipped practice on Tuesday.
Harbhajan got India's first hattrick in Tests at
the Eden Gardens only.
Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni said he was suffering from flu. "We don't know how bad it is. Once we get back from practice we will have a better idea. We will evaluate that and take a call," Dhoni said.
