Classy Sourav Ganguly decides to refund tickets for day 4 and 5 in Pink test


The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) in a generous gesture, has decided to refund money to day 4 and 5 ticket-holders. India’s maiden Pink ball Test ended within three days as the hosts defeated Bangladesh by an innings and 46 runs to clinch the series 2-0.

The historic Day night Test in Eden Gardens, Kolkata saw a massive attendance on all three days and even tickets for the fourth day were sold out. Unfortunately, the match was over in 2 days and 47 minutes as India demolished a rather weak Bangladeshi side.

“The process of refunding the amounts for Day 4 and Day 5 Tickets has started. Messages would be sent to all online transactors who have booked only for these two days,” the CAB said in a statement.

Former CAB and new BCCI president Sourav Ganguly left no stone unturned in organising the Pink ball Test at Kolkata, inviting Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, and several legendary Indian cricketers for Day 1; while India’s sporting heroes PV Sindhu, Mary Kom, Sania Mirza, Mithali Raj, Jhulan Goswami were also felicitated after the end of the 1st day’s play.

So, even though the game ended earlier than expected, thousands of fans stayed back in the stadium to catch a glimpse of their local hero, Dada!
