India vs Sri Lanka: The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) had scheduled a laser display for the second One-Day International between India and Sri Lanka at the Eden Gardens. But it was a bust on Thursday.
The Sri Lankan session ended about 10 overs before the stipulated 50 overs. And because it was still light outside, the entertainment could not continue during the innings interval.
As a result, the concert was postponed until after the game. But by the time it started, the majority of the audience had already fled.
There wasn’t much to enjoy since, even before the main performance started, the stands were overrun with cell phone torches. The loud music played and the lack of a theme during the six-minute performance failed to ignite the stands.
On Thursday, the majority of individuals who packed the Eden stands were not even alive when football legend Pele played there on September 24, 1977.
The footage of Pele’s skills that snapped across the enormous Eden display is a tribute to the legend. He died at the age of 82 on December 29, last year. It was mostly of his World Cup occasions and little of the Eden match.
So they had little opportunity of going back in time to that night when the New York Cosmos Club decided to play native giants Mohun Bagan in an exhibition game.
Blink-and-you-miss videos were unable to recapture those incredible moments. There were no surviving members of the PK Banerjee-coached Mohun Bagan team in attendance.
