New Zealand already trailing the series by a 1-0 margin as India defeated them by 197 runs in the first Test at Eden Gardens.
Now, they are looking for a turnaround in the second Test at Eden Gardens so took tips from former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly who gladly offered his expertise about the characteristic of Eden Gardens pitch.
The Cricket Association of Bengal chief was seen having a friendly chat with New Zealand batting coach Craig McMilam and another support staff who were paying a lot of attention to the former southpaw.
Ganguly quickly got into his left-handed stance and gave suggestions to play strokes through the V, and how the ball moves in these conditions.
The Eden strip has been in the news after it was reported that it would lack spin as the grass was further trimmed this morning.
“The ball is likely to move in the first two days and there should be turn from day three. We have got Bermuda grass that makes the wicket harder as the ball travels faster. The best part is it grows quicker and takes away the moisture,” Ganguly, who was seen checking the firmness of the pitch with a key, said.
This is the 250th Test for India at home, so to mark the special moment India would kill to win the match that will help them to win the series.
