From BCCI, Kolkata’s Eden Gardens Cricket ground has received the award for the India’s best Cricket ground two times. It is the largest cricket stadium in country India and the second largest in the world.
On Eden Gardens pitch, batsmen have to be careful in the beginning. Because on this pitch you will often see green grass which is helpful for fast bowlers. In Test matches, there is a tremendous swing in the first innings because groundsman leave grass on the wicket but as time passes, it becomes easier to bat on in the second and third day. On the fourth and the fifth day, due to the foot marks of the bowler, the ball starts to turn very much, so with the fast bowlers spin bowlers also get help with the pitch and that time the hardest time to bat on the Eden Gardens pitch.

The top order batsmen need to manage the swing. It is not easy to bat here on the first day, but even after the top order collapsed in the first innings the middle order can manage to score runs like 230+ in Tests. Batting here in the second innings becomes very easy, due to which you can score up to 360+ runs in the second innings. The pitch in the second innings does not help the bowler as much as the first innings. If the team takes the lead in the second innings, then the spinners in the third and fourth innings are helped by the foot marks of the fast bowlers.
