    Eden Gardens is pretty much the home of cricket in India, and its just a shame that the politics and greed within the BCCI has resulted in such a historical cricket stadium and the cricket crazy people of Kolkatta getting humiliated like that, just imagine something like this happening to MCG, Lord's or to Wanderers, the organisers there would have had hell to pay, but the BCCI officials would just move on as if nothing has happened.

    But the BCCI aren't just moving on, they're blaiming the ICC for it!

    It is an ICC tournament, and the BCCI says the ICC have been dealing with the state associations directly all along.

    AWTA. Eden Gardens is the iconic cricket venue in India IMO, regardless of who's to blame it's a farce that we're a matter of weeks away from the tournament starting and venues aren't ready. Particularly when the hosts for this tournament have been known for years.

    The BCCI reaction is hilarious to be honest.

    They can't just wipe their hands of this .

    The CAB is the most to blame ,but so are the BCCI largely and the ICC.

    The construction of the Wankhede is still not fully complete either but it holds it's first match in March.

    Looking at the bigger picture though,The no of stadiums being used in this World are too many in any case and losing one won't have a big impact.
    Though it is the Eden Gardens,which has significance in a different sense.

    Though i guess at most it will lose only one match at most,which unfortunately is the biggest one it will host.

    I don't think Eden Gardens will be such a huge miss TBH. Matches are held there very sporadically these days in any case. I think it has been overtaken by some other venues in recent times. The crowd trouble in the '96 semi and the India-Pakistan Asian Test Championship match did not help matters either.

    I think they should shift this match to DY Patil Cricket stadium near Mumbai ,tbh.

    Is a absolutely fantastic Facility .Been there and facility wise and technology wise is the best cricket ground in the country.

    But the BCCI won't use it as it is privately owned. Only Modi had the sense to use it for the IPL and rightly so.

    THere is talk of it being moved to Bangalore, which is a plus in my book. Not as epic as Eden Gardens but still a fantastic cricket ground.

    It'd make sense for the teams too, as both England and India play their next matches in Bangalore.

    BCCI has requested ICC to reconsider its decision to shift the Ind-Eng match from Eden Gardens. Now, it'll be interesting to see ICC's reaction to BCCI's "request".

    No ,I live in the political capital rather than the financial one.


    Just was visiting that area and watched a IPL match there in 2008.
