The Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium has a Lord’s style, space-ship like press box. Now another feature of the historic ground will find its place in an India stadium, as Cricket Association of Bengal will install a Lord’s-like bell at the Eden Garden’s, from the second Test between India and New Zealand.

Former skipper Kapil Dev will ring the bell– put up at the lower tier of the Club House underneath the Eden Clock.

This Test match precedes the Durga Puja; Bengal’s autumn festival. Crowd attendance could be an issue and the state association is trying to create a carnival-like atmosphere to ensure decent footfalls.
