    We have at least cut the risk of having an abandoned match in the WC.
    I am proud of this post.

    Harsh as it sounds, Indian sports bodies need a slap in the face so that they break out of their bad habits. Too bad it is Eden Gardens, and the cricket WC - but a systemic problem of this magnitude needs a prominent epic fail to hold up as an example to all others to come.

    Hopefully this will be their pawn-your-gold moment.(Reference to the early 90s when the Indian economy basically came to its knees and the bullion reserve had to be used as collateral for new borrowing. Without that the economic reforms that followed would've been put off for many more years or decades).

    As it turns out Wankhede has been also approved because the matches there begin on 13th of march and not in February.
    Ah damn.. should have given it to Chennai.. Fixture should have stayed on the East Coast
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    From what I hear anything outside of 4southern states is considered North India.

    Guess it doesn't make a difference. Losing a high profile India match is equivalent to losing all the matches imo.

    and @ the second part of your post.. That sentiment is shared by some of my friends from North India.

    It's just a change of venue right.....from Eden to Chinnaswamy, hardly something major.

    Probably, those 80,000 crazy fans of Kolkata are not going to mind. Yes, they might have been planning to and looking forward to the fixture for over a year now, but they won't mind.

    Nor will those cricket-lovers who thought they had the right sense to avoid the rush and buy the tickets early. Or the tourists who had probably already planned their flights/stays in Kolkata.

    The BCCI and the CAB will probably be able to subdue those 80,000 fans with the other SA Vs Netherlands or those Irelands vs Netherlands. Oh wait, now they're saying, even those won't be held.

    This is criminal. And yes, I know I might be sound way too concerned about this. But I speak on behalf of all those who wanted to experience the magic which Eden was supposed to produce on 27th Feb.

    I guess, most of this generation will never be able to witness a WC game at Eden, ever again.
