Calcutta: Pakistan’s experience at Eden Gardens has always been a happy one, the latest being Thursday’s one-dayer, where they recorded an 85-run win over India, thereby bagging the series.
In fact, in four ODIs they have played against India at the Eden till date, they have never lost.
And now, to leave an everlasting mark of their special association with the ground, the members of the Pakistan team have presented memorabilia to the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) before they left the city for New Delhi, where they are scheduled to play the final one-dayer of the series on Sunday.
Captain Misbah-ul Haq has presented the association his jersey, which bears the signatures of all the players and coach Dav Whatmore. The jersey will be kept in the CAB Museum.
Along with the jersey, the visitors also presented a Pakistan flag with the words ‘Salute to Eden Gardens’ inscribed on it.
Among the Indians, Yuvraj Singh has presented a pair of gloves to the CAB museum.
