What are the hot tips and best bets for the first-ever day-night Test in India?

<div><h2>India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test</h2><p><strong><a href="" target="_blank">Friday 21 November</a>, Eden Gardens</strong></p><p>There is a festival atmosphere for this contest in Kolkata. Thousands of green-clad Bangladeshis have crossed the border to arrive in the city, ready to cheer on their brethren and the home fans are eagerly anticipating a historic occasion, too. This is the first-ever floodlit Test in India, complete with the now ubiquitous pink ball.</p><p>It’s just as well there is something to it as Bangladesh’s awful beating in game one threatened to kill the series as a spectacle. The good news for Bangladesh fans is that floodlights and a pink ball should help reduce the gulf. They desperately need it.</p><p>They have a sniff now. In ordinary conditions, they would have no chance. What the pink ball will do is add seam and swing when, with a red ball, it would have been limited. In the right conditions – dusk probably – the ball should start to bend. That gives the Bangladesh bowling attack a chance against India’s vaunted willowmen.</p><p>The bookies are not sure. <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Betfair</a> go as big as 26 (25/1). We have seen worse 26 chances, even if they are without Tamim Iqbal and Shakib-al-Hasan. They will probably have to bat first though, that never changes.</p><p>There have been only 11 day-night Tests but already we have seen upsets and evidence that the gap between teams is reduced. Three of the first four were tight contests while New Zealand, last year against England, Sri Lanka in Bridgetown June last year and in Dubai the year before that have upset the odds.</p><p>For a side market bet, look no further than Mohammed Shami for top India bowler at 5.0 (4/1) with <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Betfair</a>, Boylesports, and <a href=";a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paddy Power</a>. In day-nighters, 75 percent of wickets in the first or second innings go to fast bowlers which puts a cross against Ravi Ashwin’s name. Shami, who wrecked Bangladesh in game one, is ideally placed for another strong show with the helpful ball.</p><p>We will also keep faith with Virat Kohli for top India runscorer in the first dig. He is overdue and, by the letter of the value law, we should be doubling stakes. <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Betfair</a> and <a href=";a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paddy Power</a> offer 3.5 (5/2).</p><h2>Best Tips for <a href="" target="_blank">the match</a></h2><p>Virat Kohli top India bat 3.5 <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Betfair</a></p><p>Mohammad Shami top India bowler 5.0 <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Betfair</a></p></div>
