Contractor will be felicitated tomorrow by CAB along with former English skipper Ted Dexter, the oldest surviving Test captains of both the side.
Contractor said India's rise in cricket began at the Eden Gardens.
"It all started with the Calcutta Test. The Indian cricket then slowly made themselves a major force to reckon with. We have had some great players in Tiger Pataudi, M L Jaisimha, (Dilip) Sardesai, (Farokh) Engineer, among others. It was the beginning of a glorious era."

"It will be one nostalgic moment. I've some great memories at the Eden. I'm keenly looking forward to it," an emotional Contractor signed off.
