Unlike batting great Sunil Gavaskar, who completed the ritual in front of near packed house in January when Virat Kohli’s boys took on England in January, Sehwag and Goswami had a motley crowd in front of them during the brief ceremony. (IND v AUS live scores)
Goswami has been in the news since helping the India eves reach the final of the ICC Women’s World Cup earlier this year. The tall pacer from Bengal is the leading wicket-taker in ODIs having 195 wickets in 164 matches.
The ringing of the bell ritual was introduced at the Lord’s Cricket Ground in 2007 and has since been adopted at Eden Gardens too.
India currently lead the five-match series 1-0.
