Giant screen at Eden
The Cricket Association of Bengal would install a giant screen at the Eden Gardens for a better cricket viewing of the second Indo-Pak Test.
In a bid to attract cricket crazy Kolkatans to the ground for the second Indo-Pak Test beginning on March 16, the Cricket Association of Bengal would install a giant screen at the Eden Gardens for a better cricket viewing.
The screen measuring 18'X12' would be installed in the north-east corner of the ground to help the spectators in watching the game, particularly the television replays of the on-field actions.
BCCI joint secretary Gautam Dasgupta said the giant screen, installed by a Chennai-based company free of charge, would be put on a trial run for two days from Monday and "if that is successful, the screen will be operational during the match".
Kolkata, the home town of Indian captain Sourav Ganguly, would be the third city after Chennai and Mumbai to have such giant screen in cricket ground while Bangalore would have one in near future.
