Legendary Aussie spinner Shane Warne wants the Indian team to play a Day-Night Test match in Adelaide next year. The former Rajasthan Royals captain congratulated both BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and India skipper Virat Kohli for India’s maiden pink-ball Test against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
“Congrats to you and @imVkohli on agreeing to play a day/night test. I hope there’s another one next summer in Adelaide when India tour Australia on @FoxCricket- Would be amazing buddy!” Warne replied to Ganguly’s tweet.

Even former England captain Michael Vaughan also expressed his desire to see the Men in Blues playing a Test match under the lights in Australia next winter.
“Well done Sourav .. look forward to a couple in Aussie next winter,” Vaughan replied to Ganguly’s tweet.

After the end of second day’s play, India are in a commanding position thanks to a sublime hundred by Virat Kohli (130). The hosts declared their innings at 347/9 in the second session of day, after bowling out Bangladesh for a mere 106 yesterday. The guests meanwhile in their second innings, have managed to register 152 for the loss of 6 wickets, and still trail by 89 runs.
Ishant Sharma was yet again the pick among the bowlers with 4 wickets for just 39 runs and will be eager to wrap up the game as early as possible tomorrow.
