He said the ICC would take a decision only after January 30 on hosting the match  in Bangalore or Kolkata .

“I have asked CEO Haroon Lorgat to submit a report on January 30 after talks with ICC member countries, especially England, whether they agree to give more time till February 7 to complete work at the Eden Gardens,” Pawar said.
