The giant screen put up at the Eden Gardens for the second Test between India and Pakistan appeared too small for the grand stadium, serving little purpose for the cricket fans present on the stands.

Put in the north-east corner of the stadium, the giant screen was visible only from the nearby sun-setting stand, which remains mostly empty.

The 18 feet/12 feet screen, put on by a Chennai-based firm, also remained inactive for a significant part of the first day of the match displaying only the updated score of the Indian innings.

Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president Jagmohan Dalmiya, however, said that screen was put on a trial basis for this Test and would be improved later on.
