India’s outdoor practice session had to be cancelled for the second successive day before rain made way for bright sunshine over the Eden Gardens, raising hopes of a full game in the second ODI against Australia.
In fact, Australia too had to cancel its outdoor training session even though the covers were removed for the first time in 48 hours.
Just after India left for team hotel, sun shone over the iconic stadium as Cricket Association of Bengal president Sourav Ganguly was seen inspecting the pitch and ground.
“It looks good,” said Ganguly.
The local meteorological department also gave a positive weather forecast for the match.
The match starts at 2:00 PM IST.
